I grew up in Southern California, in a multicultural household. From a young age, I developed a deep curiosity about the diversity of people and places around me. Having both parents in the medical field infused me with a deep interest in health and healing. I earned my undergraduate degree in biopsychology, examining the relationship between the mind and body, and ultimately completed my residency training in family medicine at Oregon Health & Science University.
I firmly believe that a cornerstone of good medicine involves working as a team with each patient, providing education and utilizing shared decision-making. In this way, I aim to provide comprehensive and compassionate care to patients of all ages, including newborns. In addition to general primary care services, I provide prenatal and newborn care. I also serve as a primary care provider and consultant for transgender youth and adults through Kaiser Permanente’s Gender Pathways Clinic.
I find balance through cooking, gardening, and spending time outdoors — hiking, biking, or being out on the water. I also have a passion for traveling and exploring new places near and far.
