A CU Medicine provider.

One of the things I love about being a pediatric ophthalmologist is the opportunity to set up a child for a happy, healthy, and successful future. I strive to provide the best possible care for my patients by creating a collaborative, safe, and friendly environment. No two children are the same, and I work to create a tailored multifaceted plan to best suit each patient and their needs.

When I’m not at work you can find me training for a race or hanging out with my husband and our three-legged dog, Butter. I also enjoy doing jigsaw puzzles and learning calligraphy.
