I am a Board Certified Family Physician who has found my passion with medical aesthetics. Although I still love medicine and continue to practice a tiny bit by serving as the primary care doctor for three homes of developmentally delayed adults and working an occasional hospitalist shift at Petaluma Valley Hospital, I am delighted to spend my days helping my clients love the person in the mirror more. Every single day I say at least once, “I have the best job for me that I can imagine!” I get to express a level of creativity that I had no idea was inside of me and I have become fond of saying that yes, I am an artist, and the human face is my medium!

For those of you who want to know, I went to UC Berkeley for college, where I earned a BA in Mathematics. After an initial career in consulting and software product development for public utilities, I went back to school and received my M.D. from UC Davis School of Medicine. I completed Family Practice residency at Contra Costa Regional Medical Center, where I subsequently worked as an ER physician for six years.

I came to Santa Rosa to join my father-out-law, Dr. F. Scott Chilcott in private family practice. We had the opportunity to work together until he retired in 2013. I founded Morpheus Medical Aesthetics in 2009 while I was still primarily a geriatrics specialist, but since 2014, I have shifted my focus from illness to vitality and now spend most of my time performing aesthetic procedures as well as coaching clients toward maximally healthy lives.

I am a Fellow in the California Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons. I enjoy training physicians and nurses to perform cosmetic injections at the office in Santa Rosa and speaking at conferences on emerging technologies and techniques. For fun outside of work I love to kite board, mountain bike, and laugh my head off with people I love!

Honored to be a speaker!
