Caring for my patients with a comprehensive, whole-person approach is one of the things I love most about practicing in primary care. Integrating mental health, nutrition and working through individual circumstances is central to my practice philosophy. My model of care is to partner with my patients in their health journey, and to advocate for their well-being in attaining their wellness goals. It’s rewarding for me to get to know my patients and their families, and to manage the wide range of issues we get to care for in Family Medicine. I emphasize preventative care with a focus on health maintenance, while also managing sick visits and complex chronic conditions when they do develop.
As the daughter and granddaughter of family physicians, I knew at an early age that I belonged in this field. I have been involved in medicine in one way or another for most of my life, both professionally and in volunteer capacities. Having done clinical work in Ecuador, Poland and Cambodia, I thrive on working with people from all walks of life.
I am so proud to be a part of UCHealth, working alongside a world-class team of medical providers. The access we have here to multi-specialty and comprehensive care ensures we provide the most seamless and safest experience for our patients.
In my free time I am an avid rock climber, skier and hiker. I also frequently enjoy yoga, trail running and international travel among my interests. My husband, our young daughter and our two bulldogs are happiest in the outdoors where we spend a great deal of our time as a family.
