Our brand new, latest PACE center in Concord offers a full-service seniors-only medical clinic, several social and activity centers, a large computer lab, a state-of-the-art senior gym, a spiritual room and a gorgeous outdoor patio to enjoy the sunshine and fresh air.
Seniors enrolled in our PACE healthcare plan come here to play, to get stronger, and build friendships. They also visit with their social worker or see their nurse or spend time with their occupational therapist.

“As a Center Director, I found my life’s passion. Seeing the positive outcomes is incredibly rewarding and fulfilling for me.”
As a Center Director, I found my life’s passion. By participating in the care for our seniors, seeing the positive outcomes is incredibly rewarding and fulfilling for me. I started on this path at age 14 when I worked at a retirement community and feel very blessed to be in this direct role. I bring my problem solving skills to each participant with the goal of relieving their stress, as they no longer have to attempt to figure things out on their own. From my experience as a family caregiver for my mother and experiences working in this field, I understand their challenges and serve as a strong advocate for their highest well-being with the many tools in my toolbox.
After graduating with my Bachelor of Science in Health Services Administration from California State University, Chico, I started to work in healthcare in the human resources department at a home health and hospice agency. From there, I joined Center for Elders’ Independence in 2006 as a human resources analyst bringing my love of training and development to the role. Seven years later, I was thrilled to be promoted to Center Director for the Berkeley Center.
When I’m not at work, I enjoy baking cupcakes with my kids and sharing them with others. My husband and three kids are very active in sports in Concord. At my church, I am a music minister by singing and playing the guitar during Sunday services.

“Hearing my patients share, “I can do this thing again!” makes my work worth all of the efforts and dedication.”
Hearing my patients share, “I can do this thing again!” makes my work worth all of the efforts and dedication. When I see them become more functional under my care, it strengthens my commitment to this group of amazing people.
When I first see someone, I respectfully listen to their many challenges, whether it’s with their day-to-day living or having to manage numerous medications. We work together with all of the support under our PACE healthcare model to improve health by removing barriers to get much needed services. By seeing my patients once a month, we get better control of medications. They are far less anxious and they struggle much less. It truly is an ideal setting for our beloved seniors.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree from UC Davis, then completed my medical degree at the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, Philippines. I did my post-grad residency training at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey at CentraState Medical Center in New Jersey. While there, I solidified my desire to work with older adults under very dedicated geriatrics mentors. Soon after, I moved to Philadelphia to complete my fellowship in Geriatric Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Health System. I returned home to the Bay Area to be closer to family and raise my children.
In addition to English, I speak conversational Filipino (Tagalog).
When I’m not seeing participants, I enjoy hiking, watching professional and college sports, and spending time with my wife and kids. My children keep me very busy with basketball and soccer.
