I strive to include my patients and their families in decision making around their health, incorporating the patient’s desires, needs and goals into our plan of care. I enjoy working with patients of all ages, but have a special interest in the geriatric population and those patients who are living with chronic illness. My goal is to work with patients to manage symptoms associated with their chronic illness and help them obtain their optimum quality of life. I find building relationships with patients and families to be one of the most rewarding parts of my role as a health care provider.
My husband and I were born and raised in Minnesota and have recently moved to Colorado to enjoy our love of the active outdoors. We enjoy skiing, hiking, biking, camping and kayaking. I also am an avid reader, a gardener and I love to spend time with family and friends.
