About Me

Welcome to my Web page! Here you will find some basic information about me and my practice.


I was born in Chicago but grew up in San Diego. I earned my undergraduate degree at UC Berkeley, where I majored in anthropology. After graduating, I spent three years studying the electrical sense of sharks and rays at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. After that, at the height of the tech boom of the early 2000s, I taught myself computer programming and worked as a software developer for three years. I then decided I wanted to pursue a career where I could better help others, and, after three years of prerequisite science courses at UC San Diego, entered medical school.

About my practice

I am thrilled to be part of a dynamic care team here at Kaiser Permanente Fontana Medical Center. My specialty is the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases in children. I am also a part of the Infection Control and Antimicrobial Stewardship teams at this institution. My research focus is virology, specifically enteroviruses.

How I thrive

I love food. Luckily, I also love being active. I'm an avid cyclist, and run and/or swim when I can and when I'm not nursing some injury.
