I am from Colorado Springs, Colorado, and did my medical training in Kansas City, Missouri, so I was delighted to have the opportunity to return to Colorado to practice medicine. I enjoy getting to know my patients’ stories and learning about their lives as we care for them in the hospital, and I find it rewarding to help people transition back to their lives at home as they recover from an illness.
I am board certified in the specialties of internal medicine and pediatrics. I focus on the care of hospitalized patients of all ages. I strive to make health care personalized and cost-effective for my patients. I feel that it is important to ensure that my patients and their families are well informed about the medical care they receive in the hospital, and that they are actively involved in the decisions surrounding their health care. I work as a team with our specialists, pharmacists and others to coordinate my patients’ care.
I enjoy staying active outside of work – exploring the outdoors, seeking out live music and spending time with my family.
