My goal with each patient I care for is to compassionately guide that individual and their family through what is often the most stressful situation of their lives. Whether it be an acute issue or chronic health problem, I strive to understand and treat the condition as well as understand my patients’ unique fears and concerns and educate them about the disease and treatment processes.
I’m originally from Ohio but moved to Las Vegas four years ago while stationed at Nellis Air Force Base. I am now rejoining the civilian world and am excited to start the next phase of my career in Fort Collins! I have a wonderful network of family, friends, and colleagues in the area and my daughter and I are looking forward to exploring Colorado.

I chose General Surgery as a specialty becomes it affords the opportunity to treat a wide variety of surgical illnesses and emergencies and encounter a diverse group of patients every day. Within my broad practice, I particularly enjoy treating breast cancer, as it allows for long term relationships and continuity with my patients, as well as working as a team within a multidisciplinary group to provide comprehensive care.
