Welcome to my Web page! I am happy to take this opportunity to introduce myself and give you a sense of who I am as a person and pediatrician.
I am a Southern California native and stayed close to home to complete my education. I received my undergraduate degree from Pomona College in Claremont and completed medical school and residency at USC. Training and working in Southern California has been an incredible experience as I have worked with a wonderfully unique and diverse population and have loved every minute of it! I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2015 and feel honored to be part of an organization that is so devoted to the health of its members along with the well-being of its employees.
It has always been my dream to be a pediatrician and follow in my grandfather's footsteps. I feel fortunate and privileged to take care of children every day, from just hours after a baby is delivered through high school graduation and sometimes even beyond. I believe that a strong foundation in childhood is the key to a healthy and successful adulthood, and I hope to provide parents and children with the tools and education they need to achieve this goal. I enjoy building relationships with families and being a source of support through the happy and challenging times.
I am lucky to be surrounded by a wonderful family and try to spend as much time with them as I can! I love music and have played piano and violin for many years. My husband and I frequently take advantage of the incredible opportunities in Los Angeles and explore new hiking trails, restaurants, and cultural events. We also have a sweet dog who ensures that we go on regular walks around our neighborhood!
