I was born in Santa Cruz, California, and raised in Gilroy, California. I attended UCLA for my education in Neuroscience. I graduated from medical school from UC Irvine in 2003. I completed my residency training in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery from Stanford University, followed by my Pediatric Otolaryngology Fellowship at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford University. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2009.
Professionally, my interest is in pediatric otolaryngology. I speak conversational Spanish and limited Vietnamese.
