Joyce Ildesa

Career Story: 

I have been working for Scripps Clinic in Santee, Calfornia since leaving residency in 2001. This is an outpatient clinic setting with regular office hours during the week and occasional Saturday morning clinic. I worked full-time until the arrival of my second daughter in 2009. Working part-time has been wonderful in allowing me to spend time with my kids and continue my career in medicine.

Notable Personal Accomplishments: 

Running a marathon and multiple half marathons.

Favorite Recreational Activity: 

Running for exercise, camping with my family

Favorite Memory from Residency: 

Drumming with Patricia Lebensohn at a conference in Kiawah Island, South Carolina!

Personal Story: 

Married to Jose Haro in 2003, daughters Macy Gabrielle (born 2004) and Maya Grace (born 2009)
