I have a deep passion for Family Medicine and I love providing care to people of all ages. I am so humbled to be in a profession where I can get to know my patients for who they are and where they are coming from in addition to what is ailing them–I genuinely feel this helps me to approach their care from a more inclusive perspective. I firmly believe that medicine and healing are a team effort between you, your family (blood related or otherwise), and our group of medical professionals–making decisions together, as a unit, striving to help you become the most healthy in mind and body as possible.
I was born in Alaska and raised in Colorado, so I come by my love of the outdoors quite naturally. I love hiking and camping and fishing in the rivers, lakes, and deep waters of Alaska. I also love musical theater, ballroom dancing, and attend the symphony as often as possible. My husband, family, and fur babies are the biggest loves in my life, though, and spending time with them is my most frequent pastime.
