A CU Medicine provider.
I believe that taking care of burn patients requires a team. As part of the burn team I strive to take care of the whole patient as well as their injuries, in addition, I work very hard to maintain good and frequent communication with the patient and their families.
In my spare time I enjoy painting, music, knitting and spending lots of time with my children and grandchildren doing outside activities.
