"I am a collaborative provider who takes a holistic, integrative approach to patient care."
Board certified Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
I am a collaborative provider who takes a holistic, integrative approach to patient care. I strive to connect with patients on a personal level to understand their unique problems and concerns while working to resolve individual issues with pain management.
I am a Washington native who is honored to be serving the community where I grew up. I was raised in Olympia and Tacoma and returned to the Pacific Northwest after training in Massachusetts, California, and Oregon. My father and several aunts and uncles are physicians. Seeing their passion for health care inspired me to follow them into a career in medicine. I graduated from Boston University School of Medicine and the Oregon Health & Science University School of Medicine, where I completed a fellowship in pain medicine. I also completed a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at Stanford University School of Medicine. I have a large family and love to spoil my many nieces and nephews. The collaborative and integrative environment of Kaiser Permanente helps me to provide the best possible care for my patients in the most efficient way possible.
Spending time outdoors is an important part of how I stay active and happy. I enjoy spending summers with adventures on land and sea. In the winter, I enjoy spending time on the slopes, and I keep mentally active with my side passion of computer coding. I am an avid reader who enjoys sci-fi and fantasy books. I also try to learn something new every day.
