My Practice and Philosophy
I enjoy providing for both the well care and urgent care needs of healthy children from birth to college entrance. I‘ve worked with the pediatric population of patients since completing my undergraduate training in 1987 and love the challenge and joy of seeing children grow and mature. I believe each child is unique and I strive to meet my patients' needs by providing evidenced-based care with that fact in mind. I value preventive medicine and enjoy exploring with parents and patients ways to encourage the patient’s overall health. I believe my biggest asset is the time I spend listening to and communicating with my families.

My Tenure with Kaiser Permanente
I have been with Kaiser Permanente since 1996. On a daily basis, I work with a dedicated, knowledgable, and friendly staff who is committed to the highest quality of patient care.
My Professional Interests
My particular interests include assisting mothers with breastfeeding concerns and helping adolescents make healthy choices as they transition to adulthood. I am also interested in the treatment and management of asthma, the prevention of obesity in childhood, and cognitive development in the infant and toddler. The care of children with stable chronic illnesses (cardiac, diabetes, and neurological and developmental delays) may be managed in consultation with a pediatrician.
My Outside Interests
I enjoy photography, traveling, and camping. I love attending theatre and adore Disneyland, a place I visit at least once a year.
