Patients need an advocate in Medicine!

Hobbies:
I enjoy working out, weights, cycling, hiking, home projects, sculpture, organic gardening, reading journals

Family/Volunteer information:

We enjoy watching my son swim at the local swim lab. We are really enjoying his new school community at Timnath.

Why UCHealth?
It is fantastic to be part of UCH’s mission & contribution to evidence based medicine. Neurology is setting new standards, progressive treatment options, palliative & innovative.

Why did you get into the profession?
Neurology is by far one of the most challenging, gratifying, complicated, and evolving sciences; it’s humbling but an honor to be involved in helping these families. I am personally familiar with chronic migraine, MS, and Alzheimer’s in my own family.
