My philosophy of patient care stems from my belief in accessible health care as a fundamental right of every human being. To me, a welcoming and inclusive community means consciously working to find ways to better uncover and recognize our unconscious biases about what’s “normal” and open ourselves to the possibility of greater diversity. I am passionate about building and supporting individual connections with all my patients while supplying the highest quality patient-centered care possible. As a physician assistant, I focus not only on medical care but also on the physical, mental and emotional well-being of my patients. I strive for effective communication and vow to consistently deliver evidence-based, high-quality health care, rooted in empathy, respect and admiration for the people I serve and their families.
I was born and raised in Colorado and grew up in the small, picturesque town of Estes Park. When I am not at work, you can typically find me in the kitchen baking with my person, watching the Great British Baking Show, taking walks with our sweet pup, Ellie, or spending quality time with friends and family. I also love traveling to various countries around the world, trying new things and learning through doing.
