"I genuinely care about my patients, and I believe it is a privilege to be a part of their lives."
I joined Kaiser Permanente to be a part of a community of health care providers, representing all medical specialties, who work collaboratively to deliver high quality care to all patients. My approach to care includes shared decision making. I believe in caring for the whole person and working in tandem with patients to achieve their health care goals. I strive to treat all patients as I would want my family members to be treated. I enjoy interacting with all of my patients. I genuinely care about them, and I believe it is a privilege to be a part of their lives.
I was born on the East Coast and spent the first half of my childhood there. When I was 11 years old, I moved to California, where I still consider my home. I've also spent a lot of time in the Midwest for my medical training. I returned to the West Coast to be closer to family.
I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with friends and family, and traveling. I love my job, but I also enjoy my life outside of work. It's so important to keep balance in your life.
