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.

Global health has been a longstanding passion. I have been lucky to work with Interplant WV with whom I have visited Vietnam, Nicaragua, and Haiti. It is always an inexplicably rewarding and perspective building experience.
