I was born on the East coast and have lived in Colorado for nearly 30 years. I have been a physician assistant with Kaiser Permanente since 1991 in the department of trauma. My family and I enjoy our lives in Colorado as we are all avid participants in every outdoor activity such as skiing, camping, rafting and bicycling. We also like being active in caring for our beautiful environment. My philosophy about trauma medicine is anyone in life can be subjected to a serious injury as this is a part of life. Knowing how to recognize and treat such problems is critical to continuing to live a happy and healthy life today. I also try to counsel all my patients as well on the benefits of nutrition and exercise to hopefully help them live a more active life. That’s what I believe can help benefit my patients and I hope they see that in the care I provide each and every one of them.
