A CU Medicine provider.
Our team consists of optometrists specializing in Low Vision Rehabilitation and occupational therapists with expertise in working with low vision patients. Our overall goal is to increase independence and quality of life by addressing the specific visual tasks/needs individually. We work with each patient to develop their unique treatment plan based on the patient’s specific goals for improving their visual function for their daily activities.
In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors: hiking, camping, skiing, kayaking and biking.
