I believe in high-quality patient care that often involves extra time spent with the patient, ensuring they fully understand and agree with the care plan and feel that all their questions have been answered with a clearly delineated path for recovery. Bed side manner is always made a priority, as it both optimizes the patient’s physical recovery and bolsters their mindset.
I live in Colorado Springs with my husband and two small children. Having completed our training programs in Atlanta, GA, both my husband and I were drawn to the beauty and lifestyle of Colorado. We are often found in the mountains on free weekends skiing, hiking and otherwise exploring what this great state has to offer. I am a retired gymnast whose love for the sport ultimately transformed into my current passion for orthopedic medicine.

Extensive experience assisting with total joint replacements has illuminated the massive quality of life improvements this intervention provides. Having competed at a high level in several different sports growing up and recovering from many associated injuries, returning current athletes to competition has proven extremely rewarding.
