I believe in treating the whole person and not just the diagnosis. It is important to listen, observe and understand the patient’s true orthopedic needs in order to provide the best individualized treatment care plan. I strive to provide high-quality, efficient patient centered care. My primary goal is to help patients return to normal function as quick and safe as possible.
Orthopedics has been an interest to me from a young age. I have a background in personal training and received a bachelor of science in sports medicine, which I used as a stepping stone to advance my career as an orthopedic provider. Orthopedics is a rewarding profession and I love seeing my patients regain full function after a debilitating injury.
Beyond caring for patient, doing anything outdoors is exciting to me. I love mountain and road biking, backpacking, snowboarding and water sports.
I grew up in the mid-west (Minot, ND) and relocated to Colorado in 2002. I met my husband in 2004 and we have a beautiful daughter and a dog named Koa. We spend our time off in the mountains, traveling, leading an active life
