Hello, and welcome to my Web page. I have been working at Kaiser Permanente since July 2016. I am thrilled to be a part of an organization that provides such excellent care to all their members.
I was born in Indianapolis but came to San Diego by way of Chicago where I did my medical school (Midwestern University) and residency training (UIC Illinois Masonic). I became a family medicine physician because I find great joy in caring for all ages from newborns to geriatric patients and the variety that such a large patient population brings. There is something truly special about caring for multiple generations all in one family and developing those lasting relationships.
I believe that to achieve optimal health, doctors, nurses, support staff, and patients must all be working together towards a clear common goal. Teamwork makes the dream work!
I thrive by staying physically active and spending as much time with friends and family as possible.
