I love my work as a family physician, caring for all of the members and generations of the extended family. I believe in listening to my patients and in lifelong learning so that I remain informed about the latest innovations in medicine.

Personal History

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. After my residency, I moved to Bellevue with my husband, David, and began my practice in family medicine. We continue to live in Bellevue, with our two sons and dog.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my own family. My hobbies include healthy gourmet cooking and baking, reading, and exercising including strength training.

Education and Medical Certification

I graduated from Pomona College and worked as a researcher at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. I received my medical degree from Western University of the Health Sciences in Pomona, California.

My residency in Family Practice was at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, School of Osteopathic Medicine, Kennedy Memorial Hospitals.

I became board certified in Family Practice in 1988 and have been recertified three times, in 1996, 2006 and 2015.


I have practiced family medicine in Bellevue for over 30 years and have developed long, close relationships with many of my patients.

My special interests are in women’s health care,┬ámedical management of complex and chronic diseases for men and women, and pediatric care. I am also very involved in caring for diabetics and have been part of a Diabetes Collaborative.
