My goal is to provide competent and evidence-based care in a compassionate manner. I believe in patient empowerment and seek to ensure adequate patient education and understanding. I enjoy including my patients in the decision-making process, and I hope that my patients leave their visit feeling heard and cared for.
I have lived in Colorado since I was 5 years old and love the outdoors! I enjoy hiking, bicycling, kayaking, music, fun time with family/friends and eating good food. I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we have 3 (grown) boys together.
I have been a nurse for over 21 years with a diverse work background (cardiac ICU, emergency room, cardiac cath/electrophysiology lab, GI lab, infusion clinic, cardiac clinic triage, Coumadin clinic).
The majority of my experience has been working in cardiology, and it brings me great joy to work as a nurse practitioner in cardiology. Cardiology has always been my favorite area of nursing, and I love that it gives me the opportunity to make a positive difference in my patients’ lives.
