About Me: I am married and have 2 children ages 12 and 8, that I had during residency and fellowship. When not busy with kids’ sport practices and games or going to the gym, I like fantasy and horror shows on Netflix and play video games on my phone.
Why Kaiser? I’ve been working at KP since 2011, though I’ve been a member since I was 4 as I grew up in Southern California. I believe that our ability to practice high quality medicine independently along with connection to primary care and specialists in our integrated system offers our patients the best treatment outcomes. In addition, our unique residency and fellowship programs allow us variety in our work week including time for teaching, mentorship, research and administrative duties that I am invigorated by.

About Me: I am married and have 3 children ages 9, 6 and 3 (2 girls and a boy) I had my girls during residency and fellowship and my son after I started working at KP. My husband is also a physician (family medicine and sports medicine) so I understand the world of a dual physician couple. I love baking, running, weight training, spending time with my family, Movies, Pop Culture and watching crime shows.
Why Kaiser? I’ve been working at KP since 2013, I joined straight out of fellowship. Initially life circumstances landed me at KP – My husband matched at the family medicine program here and I needed a stable job to move across the country to with our then 2 children. Now I can’t imagine being anywhere else. Our integrated system, physician leadership top to bottom, opportunities for patient care, system improvement, leadership and administration as well as teaching makes this the best of all worlds. I love the people that I work with and I love the mission of our medical group and our organization and being a part of creating the answer to healthcare and mental health care in America.

Why Kaiser? I have worked as an inpatient psychiatrist for 10 years prior to joining KP. Some of my patients on the inpatient unit at Loma Linda had Kaiser insurance; I became more and more impressed with the resources that KP was offering them especially when comparing it to other insurances, commercial or otherwise. The more I learned about KP the more I realized that I wanted to be part of a system that combines good medicine with good business, that works efficiently and is integrative. I joined KP in 2018 and I find the outpatient work to be meaningful and rewarding.
