As a woman and a mom, I understand the value of having a competent health care practitioner who can deliver culturally sensitive and compassionate care. I am looking forward to partnering with my patients to help them achieve their best state of health whether it’s physical, emotional or spiritual. Loving all aspects of the OB/GYN practice, I have a special interest in family planning and educating women about their bodies and providing support as they transition through different seasons of life.
I was born in Quezon City Philippines but grew up in the Bay Area in California. In my spare time, I enjoy being out in nature, learning how to cook new dishes for friends and family, spending time running around with my 2 kids and dancing. In high school I was a cheerleader and still love to go to sporting events and cheer on my favorite teams. However, my true passion is mentoring middle school and high school students and I’m a mentor in the Fairfax County public school system!
The favorite part of my job is creating strong relationships with my patients and getting to grow with them over the years. I want all of my patients to feel like they are heard and understood and treat each person as if they were my own family members. I pride myself on my professionalism and ability to provide great quality care.
