It is a great honor and a pleasure to provide pregnant women the support and resources they need to have a healthy pregnancy and baby.
Whether for a first time mom or a woman who has had previous children, pregnancy and motherhood is one of the major events in life. Often the truly big events in our lives can include difficult issues and emotions as well as positive feelings of excitement. My role is to provide assessments, counseling and referrals to resources for women who desire extra support during their pregnancy for emotional, social service and substance issues.
I was born in Los Angeles and have lived in California (North and South), Boston and Switzerland. I enjoy traveling, cooking, walking in nature, music, reading and spending time with family, dog and friends.
I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2001.
