About Me

Welcome to my Web page. As a surgical pathologist, I’m essentially a consultant to your personal physicians/providers, helping them determine the nature of your illnesses through tissue examination. I see members from "behind the scenes"— actually, from behind my microscope.


Although I grew up in small towns, I’ve lived in the Los Angeles area for most of my adult life—ever since I graduated from medical school at UCLA. I’ve been working at the Kaiser Permanente Panorama City Medical Center since completing my training at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

About my practice

There are six pathologists and three dermatopathologists on our team, all working together with our award-winning office and laboratory staff to bring you prompt and accurate diagnoses. We also consult with colleagues with specialty training throughout Kaiser Permanente Southern California (or Northern California), and academic specialists when necessary.

How I thrive

The Kaiser Permanente message of treating the health of the mind, body, and spirit came at just the right time for me. I find balance by cycling. I encourage everyone who doesn't have an activity yet, to keep trying new ones until one clicks with you. I’m proof that it can happen. Better late than never.
