Where I practice
I obtained my undergraduate and medical degrees through the University of Kansas (Rock Chalk, Jayhawk!). I completed my ob-gyn residency and maternal fetal medicine fellowship at the University of Colorado and was a part of the Colorado Permanente Medical Group from 2010 to 2014. I met my husband during my fellowship and we have 2 active boys. Our family relocated to Grand Junction, Colorado, in 2014 and I joined St. Mary’s Medical Group and practiced maternal fetal medicine. The beauty of the western slope is astonishing, and we loved day trips to Moab, Utah, quick weekends in Telluride and mornings with our boys in ski school at Powderhorn Mountain Resort (skiing with no traffic!). Ultimately, being a solo practitioner was too time intensive for our family, and we made the decision to return to Denver in 2019. I am thrilled to rejoin the Colorado Permanente Medical Group and to practice in an integrated system, offering top-notch care to our patients alongside world-class physicians, providers and staff.
About my practice
I view our ob-gyn and maternal fetal medicine physicians, nurses, perinatal sonographers and staff as a team working alongside families to optimize care and outcomes for mothers and babies. I encourage questions and open dialogue with women and their families. While all facets of high-risk pregnancy care interest me, I am especially interested in fetal ultrasound, gestational diabetes and pregnancy management in women with preexisting medical conditions. I review and stay current on evidence-based medicine and I share this information with families. With that said, each pregnancy and family are different. I respect patient autonomy and believe that obstetrical care should always consider families’ preferences, desires and wishes.
How I thrive
Thanks to my husband, our boys are seventh generation Coloradans and we love the active lifestyle and natural beauty of our state. We love traveling and exploring as a family, with our favorite trips including Copenhagen, Denmark and St. Petersburg, Russia. Hiking, exercising, reading historical fiction novels (real books and not e-readers), and simply experiencing daily life through our kids’ eyes brings me joy. I also look forward to returning to my volunteer work with animals.
