I was born in Kerala, the southernmost state in India. Soon after my 4th birthday, my dad's job took us to Nigeria where I began my schooling. I returned to India during my teens and went on to complete further education including medical school and Internal Medicine residency. Fascinated by the myriad diagnoses picked up on blood-smear slides, I developed an interest in Hematology during my 3rd year of medical training. I moved to the United States in 2001. After residency in Chicago, I found a position in Vancouver, Washington, as a hospitalist and fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. After my daughter was born, I moved to Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to pursue fellowship training. I am happy now to be back in the place I have for a long time considered home.

About my practice

During my fellowship, I focused both on cancer and non-cancer blood disorders (bleeding, clotting, low blood counts, and so forth). Additionally, sarcoma and breast cancer have also been areas of interest. My background in hospital medicine has instilled in me a strong sense of cost-effective and value-based practice, which is what attracted me to Kaiser Permanente. I strongly believe in shared decision-making, focusing on overall goals of care and quality of life. It is important that during perhaps the most difficult time in their lives, members and their families be able to rely on their oncology team for the care and support they need.

How I thrive

By putting things in perspective and practicing a life of gratitude, I have been able to enjoy my time at work as much as my time at home. Journaling is a therapeutic adjunct, and I strive to write on a regular basis. My daughter and I enjoy cooking, hiking, and gardening together. I love challenging myself to learn something new every year and am slowly working my way through a rather lengthy list.
