A CU Medicine provider.
I do my best to leverage my expertise and experience to help people achieve and maintain health, particularly as it relates to endocrine/metabolic disorders. In order to accomplish this, I work with each of my patients to create a plan for evaluation (if needed) and treatment. I consider it a privilege to do what I do and to have people entrust their endocrine care to me. My goal is always to have a thoughtful dialogue and personalize each individual’s care to achieve their personal wellness goals.
I love being outdoors – cycling, skiing, running, and hiking. I am an avid reader, and I enjoy everything related to food, travel, and music.

- Research interest for patients
I study how diabetes and cardiovascular disease interact to cause problems for people with diabetes, and how best to prevent it and take care of it.
