I strongly believe that the more you educate young girls and adults about what is happening to their bodies, the more you lessen their fears and anxieties, empowering them to make better health care decisions. I strive to provide compassionate and specialized care to all of my patients, routinely collaborating with various subspecialists at Children’s Hospital and The University of Colorado Hospital, in order to provide the best care for my patients.
I live in Denver with my husband and three boys. Away from the hospital, I enjoy jogging, tennis, hiking, skiing and spending time with my family and friends.
