I am originally from Salida, Colorado, and attended CU for medical school. I then completed my dermatology residency at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona. After residency, I practiced dermatology in Denver, and then relocated to a practice in Boulder after meeting my husband. I joined Kaiser Permanente in November 2016 after seven years in private practice. I am very happy to be a part of this wonderfully integrated medical system. The fantastic office staff, my dermatology colleagues and providers from other medical departments make it easy to provide comprehensive care to members.
I believe the relationship between a physician and a patient should be one based on trust, mutual respect and open communication. I will do whatever is in your best interest. I find the field of dermatology incredibly interesting and continue to learn from my patients. As a physician, I have the opportunity to help people in a meaningful way, utilizing knowledge and medical training, but also by listening to patients’ concerns and responding to what each individual patient needs. It is a privilege to help you with your concerns, facilitate getting the appropriate evaluations, and communicate with you and your loved ones. In the office I will do my best to address your dermatologic issues. I look forward to meeting you and I am open to hearing your thoughts on how we can exceed your expectations in the dermatology department.
Being a working mom with a toddler, it’s important for me to take care of myself, so that I can continue to take the best care of others. I thrive by getting up early, which is my only quiet time of the day. I fill my evenings and weekends with family activities, and I enjoy skiing, hiking and biking.
