My care philosophy is to empower the patient and family with education about their diagnosis and the treatment plan. I believe in setting short term and long term goals for patients during their path to recovery and celebrating the achievement of each goal along the way.
UCHealth is the largest and most comprehensive cardiac and vascular center in northern Colorado. The team of physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and nurses are companionate, experienced and hardworking.
Why did you choose this profession?
I love being a Physician Assistant. I love working closely with patients and the entire medical team to help patients. I feel very blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of a patient’s recovery every day.
My husband, daughter and I love backpacking, cross country skiing, camping, and playing with our black lab.
