Medicine often times does not have one ‘right answer.’ Many times there are multiple ways to approach a disease or concern. Therefore, knowing patients and their families and considering their values and personalities is key to providing care that is ‘right for them.
I value being up to date and accurate so I can provide the best medicine and information possible. Being with the University I can be confident that my employer and colleagues share this value. I am also excited to serve my community in Longmont as it is also my home.
Why I got into profession?
I grew up loving health and medicine. When I spent two summers as a camp counselor for a children’s summer camp I fell in love with children and knew pediatrics was my calling. I have been a PA in pediatrics since 2007.
I love being active outside – snowboarding, biking, skate skiing, running and hiking. I also enjoy cooking, travel and historical fiction.
I am married and have two daughters.
