I am committed to always providing patient-centered care. I enjoy working as a team, with the surgeons and entire clinical staff, in order to provide the best possible treatment for every patient that walks through our doors. I believe in getting to know my patients and educating them to better understand their condition and treatment options so that they are empowered and encouraged to have an active role in their care decisions and recovery.
I have been a physician assistant since 2008 when I graduated from the Interservice Physician Assistant program while on active duty with the Air Force. I began my PA career in family practice before completing a fellowship in Ears, Nose and Throat (ENT) in 2013. I continued in ENT until retiring in late 2019 from RAF Lakenheath, UK. My family and I then returned to Colorado Springs where we thoroughly enjoy all of the amazing activities Colorado has to offer.
