I believe in an individualized approach when treating my patients. The patient’s overall condition, as well as their beliefs and expectations, are as important as the laboratory and radiology findings. Patients should have an understanding of their condition as well as all of the options available for treatment and appropriate expectations for each. It is my job to provide this information and help with this understanding in addition to having the appropriate expertise to treat the underlying condition.

Working at UCHealth provides the opportunity to join a team that provides excellent care as well as the opportunity to return to the community that I previously called home.

Neurosurgery allows me to make a significant impact in the lives of my patients while in an environment that is constantly evolving and improving patient care.

Beyond caring for patient, I enjoy spending time with family and traveling.
