I was born in Salt Lake City, UT, and raised in Henderson, NV. After high school, I attended Pomona College in California, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Biology. Through playing collegiate tennis, I developed an interest in podiatry, and I went on to earn my doctorate at Temple School of Podiatric Medicine on scholarship. Although I enjoyed the East Coast, I was happy to return to sunny California for further training. I completed an intensive three-year surgical and clinical residency at Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara, Fremont, and San Leandro, including all aspects of foot and ankle pathology ranging from bunions and hammertoes to forefoot and rearfoot reconstruction, lower extremity trauma, ankle arthroscopy, sports medicine, and diabetic wound care and limb salvage. In my third year, I was also privileged to be selected and serve as Chief Resident.

I am thrilled to continue serving the Bay Area community as I now call it home. I am board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine and an associate of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons. My practice consists of both non-surgical and surgical foot and ankle pathologies treatments. Since each patient has unique problems and different needs, I am interested in understanding your goals to provide the most effective treatment and help you thrive.


When I am not attending to my patients, I enjoy exploring the Bay Area's many natural wonders, racquet sports (tennis, pickleball), reading, and playing board games with family and friends.
