About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I’m happy to have this opportunity to introduce myself. I am excited to be a part of the Kaiser Permanente team and am looking forward to working with you towards better health.


I was born in upstate New York, but moved to Southern California at a young age. My medical training took me across the country to Columbus, Ohio, where I was immersed in Buckeye culture and the friendly Midwestern environment. Missing my family, and my love for California, I decided to come back. Now, my husband, two daughters, and I have made San Diego our home.

About my practice

My philosophy for building better health is to work in partnership with my members. By better understanding your concerns, I hope to work with you to provide education and management options that suit your needs. This cooperative relationship, as well as my efforts to remain up-to-date on health care practices, forms the foundation of my practice.

How I thrive

I believe a healthy life requires balance. I love spending time with my family and friends. Having two young children, I'm reminded every day of the importance of the simpler things in life, and how they all contribute to this balance.
