I believe in developing a relationship of mutual trust and respect that allows me to treat and educate while empowering my patients to make decisions and implement a health plan that works with their current life situation.
I got into medicine because I love the process identifying disease, creating a plan of treatment and watching this change a person’s life for the better. Nothing feels as good as when you get it right on every level.
Beyond caring for patients, I enjoy biking, horseback riding and growing my own food. I am a third generation Fort Collins native. Also, I’m married and we have two grown children.
