A CU Medicine provider.
As a psychologist, I am acutely aware of the inextricable link between an individual’s brain and body. I believe in care and consideration for the whole woman, taking into account context, culture, and preferences.
Prior to having a family, I was an avid hiker, triathlon runner, and cyclist. Now, my personal interests center around family-friendly outdoor activities. We still hike, cycle and run, but now we find shady paths with plenty of places to stop for snacks and wildlife watching.
