Hello, and welcome to my Web page! I am an infectious diseases specialist and I am also board certified in internal medicine. I look forward to working together with you to care for your health.
I was fortunate to have been born and raised on the beautiful Central Coast of California. To begin my medical training I traveled across the country to Washington D.C., where I attended Georgetown University. I then returned to California for my residency and fellowship training. I live in Los Angeles with my husband (who is also a physician) and our two cats. I enjoy riding my bike to the beach, trying new recipes, and traveling with my husband when we get the time.
I care for a wide variety of patients with both acute and chronic infectious diseases. I pride myself on my commitment to caring for the whole person—mind, body, and spirit. We utilize a team approach in the infectious disease department to ensure our patients are getting the best care possible.
I believe that one of the keys to a happy, healthy life is loving what you do and doing what you love. As a physician, I am so fortunate to interact with incredible people every day, both my patients and colleagues. I find immense satisfaction in striving to deliver quality health care to my patients, and helping them to reach their health goals. Outside of work, I most enjoy spending quality time with my friends and family.
