A Partner in Your Healthcare

"My training taught me the medical side of women's health care as well as how to help people feel better and live healthier. But there is another side to health care that can't be taught -- the side that appeals to emotions and feelings associated with health problems. In the years that I've been in practice, I like to think that listening to you, explaining all your options, and understanding your concerns is my real specialty."

Breast Cancer Survivor and Patient Advocate
"When I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 2008, at age 47, it changed my world. I decided that no cancer was going to slow me down, and I continued to see patients in the office throughout  my surgeries and chemotherapy. Always an advocate for women's health issues, I am even more passionate about ensuring access to quality care for all women, especially those diagnosed with breast cancer. My experience has put me in contact with experts in Northern California so I can help you get the most advanced treatments available. I am available to speak with breast cancer survivors and women newly diagnosed, even if they are not my patients, and am active in fundraisng efforts like Susan Komen Race for the Cure and the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.
