My main driver for decisions around patient care are evidence-based, focusing on treatments that studies have shown to be beneficial. Over the years, I have come to appreciate that each patient is an individual and I discuss any treatment options with patients before going forward with them. I enjoy working with patients on lifestyle measures that should improve their health as well including healthy eating habits and exercise. I enjoy working with all ages from infants to older adults. I have relatively strict prescribing practices for all controlled medications and limit/avoid them as much as possible.
I was born and raised in southeast Michigan. My husband and I have lived in Denver since 2012. We enjoy snowboarding in the winter and enjoying the beautiful Colorado outdoors the rest of the year. We have two adorable corgis named Floyd and Morty. We love Colorado and consider this home now, though we still enjoy rooting on the University of Michigan (Go Blue!) and Detroit sports.
