I am one of the pediatric endocrinologists at UCSF. I earned my M.D. degree at UC Davis and completed additional training in internal medicine, pediatrics, and pediatric endocrinology. Before coming to UCSF in 2012, I was a pediatric endocrinologist at the University of Washington and Seattle Children’s Hospital. Not only do I see children and adolescents but my training in adult internal medicine, allows me to care for our growing population of young adults with diabetes. In addition to seeing patients, I run a research laboratory that studies various forms of pediatric diabetes including type 1 diabetes and cystic fibrosis related diabetes (CFRD). My passion in medicine is helping patients understand and manage their diabetes.
