A CU Medicine provider.

I strive to provide the best care for my patients. I believe in effective communication so that patients have an understanding of their disease process. Treating the person as a whole, taking every aspect of a patient’s body and health into consideration during diagnosis and treatment.

I enjoy spending time with my husband and kids, gardening, cooking, skiing, and traveling.
