About

I was born right here in Walnut Creek, at John Muir Medical Center, and grew up in the Alamo/Danville area. After graduating high-school, I attended Pepperdine University in beautiful Malibu, California and received my Bachelors of Science in Sports Medicine, with a pre-med emphasis. I always knew, even as a child, I wanted a career in the medical field. However, it was not until after graduation, and a lot of research and soul-searching, that I realized I wanted to become a nurse practitioner. After reading about the profession and having wonderful experiences with nurse practitioners as a patient, I realized this was the perfect career for me. It would afford me both the opportunity to provide comprehensive, high-quality medical care, and the flexibility to live a happy and fulfilling family life.

As much as I love what I do, there is nothing I love more then spending time with my husband and our wonderful little girl. With this new career path in mind, I began a nursing program at Samuel Merritt University in Oakland. It was during my RN rotations that I fell in love with Labor and Delivery. There is nothing more gratifying then being with and providing care to people during one of the most exciting, memorable, emotional and life-changing experiences they will ever have- becoming a parent. After graduating from nursing school in 2006, I was fortunate enough to receive a job offer in Labor and Delivery at John Muir. It is because of the love of what I do that I am still working there as a Labor and Delivery Nurse 3 days a week.

While working in labor and delivery, I began a nurse practitioner program, and three years later received my Masters of Science in Nursing as a Family Nurse Practitioner. With my L&D experience I chose to focus my clinical training in Obstetrics and Gynecology, which has led me to where I am today. I enjoy working in an OBGYN practice because it allows me to work with women of all ages, through many pivotal times in their lives, such as adolescence, pregnancy, menopause and beyond. It also allows me to form more lasting relationships with my patients and follow them throughout the course of their lives. I especially love when I get to see a couple throughout their pregnancy and then have the opportunity to care for them during their labor and delivery experience. I feel so fortunate to have joined this wonderful practice, which is committed to providing the highest quality patient care in a kind and compassionate manner. It is my goal that my patients will feel comfortable discussing their questions and concerns, and leave feeling confident in and satisfied with the care they received.
