I was born in Washington, DC, the youngest of three and the only daughter. My father encouraged me to aspire to be whatever I wanted to be. I saw my grandfather struggle with cancer, which is why I chose to become a physician to help people and specifically pediatric patients.

I have been with the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group since 2006. I joined because I was impressed with Kaiser Permanente’s integration of the physician practice with laboratory and pharmacy, along with specialty medical care.

I believe in preventive medicine and the focus on future generations to make sure that we remain as healthy and vibrant as possible.
