I am committed to caring for patients with dignity, equity and compassion. My work at the Family Medicine Center focuses primary, prenatal and pediatric care, as well as pain, addiction, abortion and sexual health, education, technology, health system design, rural practice and Spanish-language care. I dream of a more liveable world for us all, and I dedicate my creativity and privilege to help build it.
I grew up in Portland, Oregon and then attended Columbia University where I majored in music and developed a deep interest in public service. After working in an elementary school in London and an environmental education center in Vermont, I followed friends to Fort Collins. Here I fell in love with the Cache la Poudre river and my spouse. After taking pre-med classes at Colorado State University and working with Brian Jones’ Little Shop of Physics, I attended Harvard Medical School and then returned to Fort Collins to complete a family medicine residency through the Fort Collins Family Medicine Residency program. I have been a faculty member since 2018.
