Dr. Haider is grateful to have lived in and traveled to many areas around the US and globe. But she greatly appreciates the unique and varied beauty of California and so sees the great fortune of being able to live in the southern California climate, which is so conducive to experiencing as much as one can via year-round outdoor activities. While she loves all that the city life of LA can offer, she was born and raised on a Midwest family farm. And so, she has a deep connection with all that open space and nature can offer one’s overall health and wellbeing.
During her time away from patient care, you may find her with family or friends on a day or longer road trip soaking in some of the local scenery – hiking or biking, at the beach or in the mountains, or just generally exploring. Or traveling even further, just to experience. She also strives to find her own optimal balance. No matter how busy she may be, not a day goes by without some focus on her own self-care and wellness. She is also a proud mother who hopes to instill these qualities in her children. Caring for animals too has always been part of her life. You may even request to see one of her tele-pet-therapists – a kitty and a pup – who cannot wait to meet new virtual friends in their home office.
