A CU Medicine provider.
Health and wellbeing are essential underpinnings to living your best life. How one defines this is unique to each individual. As an Integrative Medicine physician, I will guide you to evidence informed therapies that will be formulated according to your personal preferences and will help you achieve your health goals. In my role as an emergency medicine physician, my goal is to protect lives and solve acute medical problems with skill and compassion. “The job of the physician is to cure sometimes, heal often and support always.” Hippocrates
I love to spend time with my partner (soon to be husband), four children, friends and three big dogs. I’m passionate about yoga and cooking. I thrive in the outdoors and enjoy non-fiction stories about The Middle East.
