Welcome to my Web page. I'm happy to have been working at Kaiser Permanente in Riverside since 1994. I love being part of an organization that is continually improving its service to members.
I was born in Ontario, Canada. My family valued education highly and allowed me to attend a boarding school for high school. When I was 10, an aunt asked what career I might be thinking about and suggested that anything is possible, even becoming a physician. I was inspired by that thought and have continued to be thankful for the opportunity to continue my education through medical school.
I truly believe in our team approach to patient care. In addition, I enjoy teaching patients about their medical concerns so that their recovery is improved and steps can be taken to improve their health in the future.
I try to plan activities that keep my husband and two sons moving. We enjoy going for walks in our neighborhood, ice skating, biking, and hiking at national parks and local trails. I also enjoy reading to expand my awareness and knowledge of information outside of medicine. I've been particularly impressed with the health benefits of following a plant-based diet.
