Meet Your Concierge Physician’s Team

February 13, 2015

The Holiday Season helps us all slow down and truly give thanks. We are all so blessed and have so much to be thankful for. I am grateful that I get to be your doctor and that you share your lives with me. Thank you for that privilege. I am thankful for the wonderful women I work with. They make coming to the office a pleasure. You have met them in the office and spoke with them over the phone.  I have asked each to introduce themselves to you:

I have been in the medical field for 18 years and I enjoy what I do. I have been married for 34 years to the most wonderful man, Jim. We have a son, a daughter and two dogs. I became a grandma in June of this year. What a joy! I can’t see her enough! I love to craft, scrapbook, bake, sew, garden and dance. Join me for line dancing on Monday and Wednesday nights.

I was born and raised in the south bay, attending the local schools. I have been married to my high school sweetheart  for almost 40 years.  We have four great kids and three terrific grandkids. I have been in the medical profession for 35 years, working in both the hospital and office environments. Most recently I retired from managing a busy practice.  I enjoy sewing, cooking, line dancing, and spending time at our river shack, but most of all I enjoy spending time with my grandkids. I am happy to have this opportunity to work part time so that I do have extra time to spend time with my family.


I am practically a native of the South Bay area, having lived here since the age of one.  I’m the oldest of four children and have two hilarious nieces with whom I love to spend time.  I have worked in medical offices since 1998 in the fields of Ophthalmology, Dermatology, OB-GYN, Sleep Medicine, and Family Practice.  I now find myself working for doctor that took care of me as a youngster.Having grown up in Redondo Beach, I attended local schools.  My favorite course of study turned out to be Spanish and in 2005 I had the privilege of traveling to South America for a real cultural immersion.  Last year, I also made it over the Atlantic for an intro to the Irish culture. I enjoy learning about and experiencing many different cultures including the music, food, and languages, but especially the people.  I also like cooking, dancing, volleyball, tennis, and bike riding and my favorite book is the Bible.  If I could have one super power, it would be the ability to breathe under water.
