I am a part time pediatric cardiologist in a Northern California private group practice, the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, located in Dublin, CA. I specialize in general pediatric cardiology, fetal echocardiography and preventative cardiology (specifically childhood obesity and hypercholesterolemia).
I went to Arizona State University where I graduated in 2015 magna cum laude with a BS in Biochemisty. I received my MD at The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine for medical school. I completed my Pediatric Residency and Pediatric Cardiology Fellowship at Stanford Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto. In my final year of fellowship I served as the inaugural Chief Fellow. I am board certified in Pediatrics and Pediatric Cardiology.
I have two kids, a dog and a husband who is a plastic surgeon practicing in the same medical group. Absolutely LOVE living in the Bay Area and am a fitness enthusiast who prioritizes exercise and nutrition in my own life every day. I’m passionate about tackling the issue of childhood obesity and hypercholesterolemia to reduce the incidence of adult onset coronary artery disease through teaching kids and families the importance of eating real food, predominantly plants, mostly veggies!
