About Me

I am originally from New England. I then spent nine of my childhood years in South America, Argentina, Bolivia, and Brazil. I attended Swarthmore College near Philadelphia where I graduated with distinction in Biology. I received my medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine. I did an Internal Medicine internship at Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia. My husband and I wanted to escape the humid summers and moved to the Bay Area, where I completed my residency at Stanford University Hospital. I then made a career change and completed a second residency in Dermatology, also at Stanford.

As a specialist in Dermatology, I take care of conditions of the skin, hair, and nails, such as rashes and growths. I chose dermatology in order to be able to help patients look and feel better about their skin.

I am board certified in Dermatology and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, and a member of the San Mateo County Medical Association. I joined the Dermatology Department at Kaiser Permanente Redwood City in 1991. I am experienced in all aspects of clinical dermatology. I am also a member of the Clinical Faculty at Stanford, where I am a Clinical Associate Professor of Dermatology. I enjoy teaching Stanford medical students here at Redwood City, and also teaching Stanford dermatology residents at the Palo Alto Veterans Administration Hospital.

I enjoy practicing at Kaiser Permanente because of the wonderful community of members and staff we have here.

My practice philosophy is to be certain that all of your concerns are understood and addressed. If you forget to ask a question during your visit, you may leave me a message at the Kaiser Permanente Redwood City Specialty Call Center line at (650) 299-2111 or send me a secure Email message via kp.org.
