About Me

Thanks for viewing my homepage!

I came to California for medical school at the University of California at San Francisco and fell in love with the San Francisco Bay area.  My childhood in Virginia and subsequent college years in Boston were wonderful experiences, but when I moved to California, I knew this is where I wanted to call home.

Medicine seems to be in my genes as my father is a retired anesthesiologist and my mother is a family practice physician.  Throughout my training, I was drawn to dermatology patients as I grew up with atopic dermatitis and understand the difficulties of living with a skin condition.  I love practicing medical dermatology but also enjoy working at the cosmetic clinic in the Union City Medical Offices.

As your doctor, I would like us to work as a team to maximize your health and quality of life.  I am always happy to answer any questions and to be a partner in your goals of leading a healthy, happy life, and most importantly, to thrive.

Family and Friends

I have a wonderful husband who balances me out personally and professionally (he is not in healthcare).  We are busy raising our two young children but still find time to bike or carpool to work.   It’s important to us to contribute positively to our environment, and I encourage all of you to be mindful of your carbon footprint.

Hobbies and interests

I love backpacking, travelling, cycling, and running.  Most of all, I love sharing all my adventures with my amazing husband.
