About Me

Welcome to my Web page. I hope this will be of interest to you, and we can together work to improve your health and health care.


I am from the great state of Kansas, and moved around until a vacation to San Diego, and here I have been for 18 years. My interest in science and curiosity about life and biology drew me into medicine. I am still curious and still challenged by the practice of family medicine. I find cooking desserts and then working off the desserts at the gym and outdoors to be the best way to relax.

About my practice

We are a team at Kaiser Permanente, in the large and the small sense. I work at the Kaiser Permanente La Mesa Medical Offices, with a team that includes doctors, nurses, and receptionists, all dedicated to providing high-quality care to our members. We work together to help give the best and most complete service we can.

How I thrive

Although my days are busy and demanding, I feel it is important to stay active physically and mentally in my off hours, and think that this contributes to my own general well-being and health. I find I have more energy for work and play. I like eating healthful foods, and do also indulge occasionally in the comfort foods. I try to find a balance in my life between work, play, and rest, travel for new experiences; and keeping fit with exercise.
