 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
I graduated from Yale University with a major in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. After college, I moved back to California and attended medical school at the University of California San Francisco (2005). I completed my Pediatric Residency at Children's Hospital and Research Center Oakland, and moved to Los Angeles for fellowship training in Pediatric Endocrinology. I moved back to the Bay Area and joined Kaiser Permanente in 2012.

As a pediatric endocrinologist, I care for children with chronic, life-long conditions. My goal is for my patients to lead healthy, productive lives. I try to help families understand the intricacies of their child's daily care and to embrace the bigger picture of living a healthy life and achieving independence in the management of their chronic condition.

I believe that it is essential for patients and families to fully understand their condition so that they can be active players in their health care decisions.
