Every patient is unique. Not only do the women I care for come in with unique health circumstances, but they come from different backgrounds, have different life experiences, and specific needs. As an obstetrician gynecologist, my goal is to create a safe environment with open, clear conversation in order to provide the best medical care possible to every woman. It is important to me to educate my patients about their conditions, and to have a discussion about possible treatment options so that together we can make a plan to achieve the best possible outcome.
I am a wife and mother of three boys. I am originally from Texas, but fell in love with the Rockies, and our family decided to go on an adventure and move to Colorado. We enjoy many outdoor activities, but especially running, hiking and biking. If you find us indoors, we are likely enjoying a competitive board or card game. I believe that staying active and making healthy choices leads to a happier, more stress-free life, even in the midst of occasional chaos. My own experiences, in life and as a mother, have shown me that there is no problem that is too big to meet with calmness and hope. This helps me be a better doctor.
