Compassionate and individualized care, strong communication, collaboration, and the desire to be of service are the cornerstones of my philosophy of care. I became a surgeon because I am fascinated by the human body, the anatomy and physiology encompassed by surgical solutions, and the ability to improve my patients lives by treating the underlying surgical problem. I thoroughly enjoy my work, and am honored to serve my patients in the best way possible for their unique situation.
I am a Colorado native. My husband Josh and I love spending time outdoors and with our close family, reading, skiing, hiking and traveling. We have Bengal cats and are looking forward to settling down to start our family in Northern Colorado.
