A CU Medicine provider.
My aim is to provide comprehensive care for both patients and their loved ones. I believe in approaching patient care with the goal of providing diagnosis and appropriate treatment as well as improving quality of life.
In my spare time I enjoy skiing, camping, backpacking, trail running, and relaxing with my family and two dogs.
