My approach is to use my varied background, and that of my colleagues, in order to treat all aspects of our patients’ needs. In working as a team and utilizing the extensive resources that UCHealth provides, I believe we can make a significant impact in our patients’ lives.
Prior to becoming a physician assistant at UCHealth, I worked for 16 years as an athletic trainer, earning a bachelor’s degree in athletic training from Messiah College and a master’s degree in kinesiology from the University of Kentucky. I earned my master’s in physician assistant studies from the MGH Institute of Health Professions, following which I worked in cardiac surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
I’m originally from Boston, but loving my life here in beautiful Colorado. When away from work I enjoy staying active, spending time with my German shepherd Freyja, and working in my garden.
