My Care Philosophy

I became a physician to help patients. Handling complex situations and serious diseases is also something I enjoy. My first exposure to Kaiser Permanente was many years ago through a family member who received fantastic care for decades from the health care organization. Additionally, I personally knew many physicians, clinical staff members, and patients who were part of the Kaiser Permanente family. Medical staff and patients had consistently great things to say about the organization, which is another reason why I joined. My aim is to provide patients with the right treatment for their unique health care needs. I want to discuss their conditions and understand their treatment goals, in order, to devise the best plan possible. The best medical plans are those where patients and providers are both invested. The lifetime bond I share with my patients is immensely rewarding.

About Me

I was born overseas where my parents were teachers on military bases. I went to school in Arkansas, and lived on a farm throughout my high school years. My family and I have lived in the Tacoma area for more than nine years, and we consider ourselves Washingtonians. I've been married for 23 years to a wonderful teacher turned training manager. We have a daughter in high school and a son in college.

How I Thrive

After serving in the military for more than two decades, I traveled to dozens of countries and provided medical care in many different settings. Also, after living in Germany for several years, my family and I especially enjoy traveling. I also like reading mostly non-fiction books. Additionally, I serve as a volunteer faculty member for a local program where I teach medical trainees how to use computers to make health care better.
