As both a physician and a surgeon, I utilize a collaborative philosophy to providing patient care. I am a strong proponent of using evidence-based medicine and stepwise plans in treating diseases of the head and neck. I am also a firm believer in patient-centered care with the idea that the patient and family are essential partners in determining and completing their most appropriate treatment. For many ear, nose and throat diseases a team approach is needed, and I strive to develop the clinical relationships needed for excellent, integrated care.

I am so blessed to be able to live and work in beautiful southern Colorado. I enjoy mountain biking and skiing with my husband, David, as well as hiking with our dog, Pepper. I love to garden, but between the deer and the hail, I have not been very successful yet.

Clinical interest for patients

My clinical interests cover the spectrum of general otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat) with an emphasis on surgical procedures. I have fellowship training in rhinology and facial plastic surgery with a focus on complex sinus disease, anterior skull base surgery, and nasal and facial procedures, including rhinoplasty and Mohs reconstruction.

Research interest for patients

My research interests are focused on rhinology, including new approaches to managing difficult chronic sinus diseases, such as nasal polyps. I am also interested in outcomes research to track the true risks and benefits of current sinus disease treatments.
