I believe there is a beauty and art to providing good medicine, and my role in this is to help educate, guide and empower a patient to make the best decision possible for their health. We are all unique individuals and therefore should be treated as such. My goal is to help treat patients’ symptoms in order for them to live life to the fullest and to teach patients how to trust and listen to what their body tells them; it is the smartest doctor in the room.
I am married to a wonderful husband who also works in health care as a pediatric respiratory therapist. I just became a new mom to our beautiful baby girl in August of 2022 and have been a dog mom to a mutt we rescued five years ago. I’m originally from Indiana but have lived in Colorado since 2011. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, read, listen to podcasts and be outside doing something active like skiing, hiking, paddle boarding, biking or walking. I also love to camp and travel.
