Kaiser Permanente physician
Idioma que hablo:
Se aceptan pacientes nuevos.
Welcome! It is very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you get to know me. I am privileged to work with a wonderful team of colleagues and members at Kaiser Permanente, and I look forward to partnering with you to help you achieve your health goals.
I am lucky to be a San Diego native and have spent most of my life here. After college at UCLA and medical school in Chicago, I returned to San Diego for residency at Camp Pendleton while serving in the US Navy. I continued to care for military and civilian patients until joining Kaiser Permanente in 2015. My husband, children, and I enjoy all that San Diego has to offer, especially time at the beach. Although I share the name of a famous surfer, I prefer watching my husband and kids ride the waves!
My main goal is to help you and your family succeed in preventing and treating illness. I expect that you will have an active role in furthering your wellness by making healthy choices in your daily life. Our Kaiser Permanente team works together closely to keep you well. This includes a focus on healthy eating and exercise to prevent and treat many conditions, and using medications when needed. We strive to provide the education and resources you need to succeed. I truly enjoy caring for members of all ages, from newborn babies to grandparents. I also have special interest in nutrition for well-being, starting with baby's first foods and continuing throughout life. Your questions and concerns are my first priority, but I also make it my goal to think about all aspects of your care to make sure your complete health is addressed.
I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids, traveling, hiking, reading, design and home projects, and cooking. I try to find or create new healthy recipes on a regular basis for the whole family to enjoy. I would be happy to share recipes and would love to try some of your favorites too!
