A CU Medicine provider.

I work to make my patients comfortable and feel included and active participants in their care. Being engaged is a healthy first step toward outstanding outcomes.

I enjoy the outdoors and activities including hiking and biking. I am always up for travel; some of my favorite stops have been Melbourne, Australia, Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, CA, anywhere in Italy, the south of Spain, and the Islands of Greece.
