My hope is to put the patient first in every clinical decision that is made. I believe that with effective communication and transparency, all patients are able to make good decisions about their health. I strive to form a collaborative relationship with all of my patients, so that together we can determine the best plan of care for them as individuals.

Why did you choose to work for UCHealth?
I believe that UCHealth provides excellent medical care to the people of Colorado and continually strives to grow and improve. The medical staff genuinely like working for the organization and I am excited to be a part of the team.
Why did you get into the medical profession?
I have loved cardiology since I first learned about it in medical school. Not only was the content very interesting, but the thought of being able to help heal people’s hearts drew me to the field. I love the complexity, variety, and opportunity that cardiology gives both me and my patients.
