Seemed very rushed the entire time. It was our first visit and no effort was made to find out about our daughters past history of her to know her. We were looking for a provider that cared about her and our concerns and don't feel that we found that.

I am originally from Northern California and attended medical school at the University of Minnesota. I completed my residency at Oregon Health & Science University and decided to stay in the Pacific Northwest. I chose Pediatrics because it gives me an opportunity to educate patients and families. I hope to shape healthy lifestyles and make for healthier futures for my patients.

About my practice

My General Pediatrics practice allows me to meet and work with a wide variety of patients and families. I emphasize prevention through education and access to necessary medical resources. As part of this process, I follow the immunization schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics and believe it is safe for all children. I chose to work at Kaiser Permanente because I believe in excellent comprehensive health care, providing myriad prevention tools and resources for patients and promoting a great environment in which to interact easily and collaboratively with colleagues, sub-specialists, and our support staff.

How I thrive

My favorite time is that spent with family and friends. Dancing, cycling, walking my dog, enjoying the performing and visual arts, cooking, and trying new foods are what I love. I think new experiences keep my body and mind young and are essential for a vibrant life.
