I connect with patients by actively listening and engaging communication to help promote individualized and personal care. From the time the patient is checked in until they are checked out, I will ensure a welcoming, timely and informative experience. My compassion and listening skills are elemental in bridging patient care. I look forward to helping you gain health goals by utilizing ever-evolving technologies, team-based medicine and providing tools to empower yourself for better health.
UCHealth promotes physician engagement in patient care by providing comprehensive services, like what is found at the new UCHealth Highlands Ranch Hospital. At UCHealth Sterling Ranch Medical Center, I look forward to working with our team to promote patient wellness, including family medicine, urgent care, occupational medicine and physical therapy.
I am married and have two children. As a family, we enjoy international travel to India, Peru, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Mexico, Cuba, Canada, Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy to name a few. My hobbies and interests include any seasonal outdoor activities – as long as I am outdoors, I’m not picky! Skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, biking, swimming, yoga and more. I also enjoy quiet time reading, preferably with a cup of tea or coffee! I enjoy cooking from scratch for my family and friends.
I have done international medical volunteer work in Peru, India and Cuba. I recently volunteered for a JeffCo charter school 6th grade outdoor adventure lab near Buena Vista, Colo. attending to about 100 school age children. I am the recipient of the Medical Student Association Leadership Award and Reproductive Externship through Planned Parenthood.
