I am proud to be a part of the urgent care team at UCHealth. When you are ill or injured, and your regular healthcare provider is unavailable, you can count on our urgent care team to provide the care you need for minor acute illnesses and injuries.
An important part of my job is helping patients understand treatment options and how those treatments work so we can share in decisions about the best options for their condition. I also believe that healing does not just come in a prescription bottle, but also in human care and connection.
In my free time I enjoy hiking, climbing, biking and gardening. I have four beehives, a flock of chickens and two spoiled dogs that get walked three times a day. Our two children are grown, and we are lucky to have two delightful grandsons near by.
