About Me

Welcome to my Web page! I am happy to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. My staff, colleagues, and I look forward to working with you and your family to help your children thrive.


I am originally from the Midwest and pursued my degree in biological basis of behavior at the University of Pennsylvania. I went on to complete a Master’s in Public Health at Columbia University. My interest in pediatric health started when I worked at a school-based health clinic in New York City. Afterwards, I decided that I wanted to become a pediatrician to help children live healthier lives. I finished my medical degree at Drexel University and completed my pediatric residency at UCLA.

About my practice

I enjoy all aspects of pediatrics, from caring for premature infants to teenagers, and from counseling preventative care in the clinic to treating serious illnesses in the hospital. I always see the family as a necessary part to preventing and treating disease and I look forward to working with your family.

How I thrive

I enjoy reading and spending time with my family and friends outside in the sunny California weather.
