I am originally from New Mexico. I completed my bachelor’s degree in biology at Washington University in St. Louis before returning to New Mexico to attend the University of New Mexico for medical school. I completed my internal medicine residency in the primary care track at the University of Colorado.
I chose to become a primary care physician because I enjoy developing long-term relationships with my patients. I believe the physician-patient relationship should be a partnership. I strive to educate my patients, so they can make informed decisions about their health. I work as a team with our specialists, pharmacists and others to coordinate my patients’ care. My primary interests are disease prevention and the management of chronic diseases such as diabetes and obesity.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and friends. To relax, I enjoy going to the gym, watching a good TV show or exploring beautiful Colorado.
