Welcome to my Web page, thanks for visiting.
I grew up in Northern California, then moved south during my education, with stops in Santa Barbara for my undergraduate degree and Los Angeles for my medical degree at the University of Southern California—fight on Trojans! At Santa Barbara, I was a competitive swimmer and met my husband. I enjoyed my medical school training and stayed for my residency training at Los Angeles County+USC Medical Center.
Working in health care appealed to me from an early age as a way to apply ongoing discoveries in science to improving the lives of people. Ob/Gyn, in particular, is a unique and rewarding specialty in medicine. I have the opportunity to care for women ranging from adolescents to the elderly, and I have the privilege of delivering babies and performing surgery. Keeping current on new recommendations and treatment guidelines is important to me so that I can provide high-quality care to our members.
Living in Southern California provides ample opportunity to be outdoors! The beautiful weather and nearby beaches keep me outside as much as possible. I like walking or running my dog, and spending quality time with my kids. In the summertime, we love swimming. Getting together with friends and nearby family for meals and weekend events, and always having a trip or event to look forward to, are just a couple of the things that keep me healthy in mind, body, and spirit.
