About Me

I am a board certified dermatologist and a Fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology. In 2011, I joined the Permanente Medical Group. I was born and raised in the East Bay and am very happy to return home. After spending my first 18 years here, I went to college at Yale University, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Biology. I returned to San Francisco to attend medical school at UCSF, and then headed back to the North East for my residency training at the State University of New York, Downstate. In between these cross country moves, I have lived in Nicaragua and Zambia, where I worked in local health clinics and became fascinated with health delivery and access to health care.

Roles and Responsibilities

My role first and foremost is to give you the best possible medical care. I work in San Francisco where I see patient of all ages. I also spend time as a “roving” dermatologist, where you may meet me at a visit with your primary physician or another specialist. As part of your team of doctors here at Kaiser Permanente, I am privileged to help provide you with up-to-date, timely, integrated health care.
