A CU Medicine provider.
In Maternal-Fetal Medicine, great medical care takes being an expert in the field while also understanding complicated pregnancies are not just a “medical issue”. I strive to work as a team with my patients (and their families) to ensure that the plan we make together works for them. Patients should always feel that they have a voice and it is my goal to ensure that they feel heard and feel central in all decisions that we make together.
I grew up in Alaska and first moved to Colorado for my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Being outdoors has been a part of my life since I was born and these days, in my spare time, I enjoy hiking and camping with my husband, kiddo, and two dogs.
