My Care Philosophy

I am a faculty member at Kaiser Permanente's Family Medicine Residency, which has allowed me to participate in the Teen Pregnancy Clinic and the Procedures Clinic, a part of the General Surgery Clinic. I enjoy being in a large multi-specialty group which focuses on prevention and evidence-based medicine. It is a great honor to be a part of my patient's lives. I strive to be an active listener and understand the point of view of my patients, while providing them with necessary information to make informed decisions. I practice broad-based family medicine in the Rainier Valley, focusing on women's health, maternity care, teen health and musculoskeletal medicine. I am privileged to work at Kaiser Permanente with a great group of people in many different areas, including my own clinic, the residency clinic, the hospital and many specialty clinics.

About Me

I grew up in California, but moved around a lot as a child. I am married with two adult children and a large extended family. I have always wanted to be a physician, and I love the interpersonal connections this career affords me, along with the scientific rigor the medical field demands.

How I Thrive

I love to cook and entertain on a regular basis. I bake sourdough rustic bread, which we have for breakfast every morning. I try to eat well and make a nice dinner almost every day of the week. I like to start my day with an intense workout before going to work. I do yoga on the weekends. Most of our trips away include visiting the ocean and my children who live near there. Currently, I am learning to speak Spanish, which is a painfully slow process, as you might imagine.
