I was raised in Santa Ana and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology, with a minor in Chemistry, from Cal State University Fullerton. My medical journey continued at Western University of Health Sciences, where I pursued Osteopathic Medicine.
In 1996, I moved to Redding to complete a 3-year hospital-based Family Medicine Residency program through UC Davis at Mercy Medical Center. This vibrant community became my home, and I’ve been here ever since.
Not only am I passionate about practicing medicine, but also about imparting knowledge. I’m privileged to be a part of the teaching faculty for UC Davis and Western University, instructing medical students and Family Medicine Residents.
I joined the Redding Rancheria Team in 1999, and have found immense satisfaction in practicing full spectrum Family Medicine at the Tribal Health center. Approximately in 2007, I stepped into the role of Medical Director, and I now proudly serve as the Tribe’s ‘Chief of Medicine.’
