My philosophy of care focuses on education and patient generated goals. I want patients to be well informed and involved in their rehabilitation journey. I thrive on coming alongside patients in generating functional goals that are unique to them. I believe that if the patients are actively involved in their treatment then they will achieve better outcomes.
Why UCHealth: I work at UCHealth because it is an academic center that is dedicated to providing the best and most innovative care to achieve optimal patient outcomes. This atmosphere is contagious and challenges me to better my skills with each individual patient.
