A CU Medicine provider.
I am a passionate believer in narrative medicine and making my patients a crucial member of our healthcare team. I truly believe that educating and involving my patients in their care enables them to more effectively and proactively manage their healthcare when away from the office. This reduces the incidence of non-adherence, improves patient outcomes, and helps to manage healthcare costs.
I enjoy trying new foods and travel. I love to hike with my family throughout the Front Range. When I get a moment, I’m an avid reader of primarily fiction novels.
