Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to have this chance to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I feel very fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of my wonderful colleagues and patients, and I look forward to working with you to care for your health.
I grew up in Chicago and attended college at the University of Illinois where I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree. I attended medical school in Stockholm, Sweden and received my medical degree from the Karolinska Institute, which is a well-known research center and also the site of the Nobel Institute. My residency training in family medicine was completed in Reading, Pennsylvania. I’m fortunate to have worked in various medical settings, including private practice and the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, as well as being on faculty at UC San Diego's medical school. Since coming to work for Kaiser Permanente, I continue my affiliation with UCSD medical school on a voluntary basis as associate clinical professor. I have lived in San Diego for 10 years and love my practice here.
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what members need. I feel very honored that members have entrusted me with their medical care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
My hobbies include hiking, biking, and enjoying the excellent weather of San Diego with my children and my pet dog.
