I believe in an interactive approach with my patients, listening and making them feel that they are more than just their diagnosis. I want patients to feel comfortable with their health, treatment and follow-up when they walk out the door, power off their computer or hang up the phone. I want people to know their decisions are respected and feel accepted for who they are. I enjoy caring for patients of all ages and from all walks of life.
I enjoy seeing patient of all ages from pediatrics to adults. As health care is ever changing, I strive to keep finding new ways to keep patient’s involved and up-to-date with their health care. I feel a team approach is necessary to help patients achieve the best possible outcomes.
I am a Colorado native who attended Metropolitan State College as an undergraduate, and received my master’s degree of physician assistant studies at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha. I am certified by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants, specializing in family practice with recognition in surgical procedures. I have expanded my knowledge base in pursing work in urgent care over the last three years and love the day-to-day challenges it provides me as well as fast-paced environment. I have a wonderful husband, stepson and a pup named, “Bailey”, who keeps us on our toes. I start every day with a positive outlook and making each day the best it can be. When I am not at work, I like spending time with my family, enjoying the beautiful outdoors and reading.
