A CU Medicine provider.
Listen to and learn from the patient. Provide focused education for each individual about their eyes and vision.
I enjoy being outdoors gardening at home, walking with my dogs in my neighborhood and playing in the mountains. I am also a certified scuba diver and enjoy traveling to new places with my family and friends.

- Clinical interest for patients
I am a primary eye care provider at the UCHealth Eye Center, which is part of the University of Colorado School of Medicine Department of Ophthalmology. This year marks my thirty-fifth year in practice! I enjoy providing eye and vision care to individuals with ocular health issues ranging from ocular muscle misalignment treatable with glasses to those with diabetes (especially those who need more education about the impact of the disease on the eyes). I regularly see patients who are developing cataracts to individuals suffering from vision issues related to a movement disorder, such as Parkinson's disease. I provide vision and eye health assessment in collaboration with neuro-ophthalmologist, Victoria Pelak, MD, in a specialty clinic devoted to individuals with movement disorders. I make every effort to help my patients understand their eyes and visual function.
