When caring for patients, I take the time to ask questions and actually listen to the answers. The patient is the expert on their body and only by really hearing them can we have a successful partnership.
Not only does UCHealth have a proven track record of excellence in comprehensive patient care, but it fosters an environment for employees to grow professionally. I look forward to working alongside like-minded professionals and growing the multiple sclerosis program in ways that meet the whole body needs of patients by utilizing research, proven standards of care and complementary therapies.
My interest and fascination of the inner workings of the brain began in my high school psychology class. Medicine seemed like a natural fit for my passion, but it wasn’t until my diagnosis of MS in medical school that my path to Neurology seemed to be predestined.
Outside of caring for patients, I enjoy writing and recording music. Skiing, snowboarding, stand up paddle boarding and surfing.
