I strive to provide the best care for my patients and their loved ones. I believe in learning about each patient as a person (not just “an illness”), their values and priorities, and matching those values/priorities to treatment options to individualize the care of each patient.

In my spare time, I enjoy mountain biking, skiing and snow shoeing.
