Dermatology is a field of medicine that allows me to provide education, health screenings and treatment plans in one visit. It is my goal always to work together with patients as a team to provide them the best care possible.
UCHealth encourages a patient first approach to medicine with the ultimate goal of improving lives. Those goals echo my philosophy of care as well. UCHealth is a trusted name in the community and I am happy to be a part of such a great team.
Why did you get into this profession?
I enjoy seeing patients of all ages and treating a wide variety of skin conditions in clinic as well as performing procedures such as surgical removal of skin cancer. Our skin is the largest organ in our body and the first thing that people see. It often gets overlooked when it comes to self-care and also can markedly affect patient’s lives when they are struggling to manage a chronic skin condition. Helping patients care for their skin and take preventative measures to reduce the risk of skin cancer, as well as controlling more chronic conditions, is a very rewarding part of practicing dermatology.
I love the great outdoors and spend my free time running, hiking or skiing depending on the season. I also balance my outdoor activities with yoga. Other interests of mine are travel and cooking.
