Philosophy of Care
Caring for children and our community is my passion, both professionally and personally. I am an active member of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and have been in pediatric practice for more than 10 years. Being a mother of two helps me have a better understanding of patients and parents' needs.
Being part of the excellent health care team at UC Davis Medical Group allows me to continue my efforts in building a healthy and safe environment for local families.
Outside of work, I love to spend time with my husband and two boys, hiking, biking, doing yoga and cooking.
Dr. K's clinical interests include: breast feeding, pediatric behavioral and development, and ADHD.
