I believe practicing primary care truly encompasses lifelong learning. I am deeply fulfilled by long-term relationships with patients and enjoy the partnership that being a primary care doctor offers with people of all walks of life.
In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, theater and exploring the Rockies with my husband and two toddlers.
