My goal is to get patients and employees back to full function and normal activities as soon as possible; work with employers to create a healthy and safe workplace; and work with insurance companies to get claims and information process efficiently.
Why UCHealth? The team is great and the opportunity to connect with the community and develop employer programs is exciting.
Why did you get into this profession? Physiology – exercise physiology is where I started. I then studied under orthopedic surgeon and realized I could do more as an occupational medicine doc.
Hobbies: Hiking, biking, hockey, skating, camping and spending time with my children.
Family: Wife, Janet; daughters Addison and Payton
