My gender: Female
Where I practice
I am originally from Chesapeake, Virginia, and I have lived all over the East Coast so I can consider myself an “East-Coaster” through and through! I initially moved to Colorado to complete my training, however, once here I fell in love with its people, culture and traditions. As a result, my husband and I decided to put down roots and recently welcomed our first child! The most rewarding part of being a physician is helping to relieve the pain and suffering that my patients experience. I approach treating each patient as I would my own family.
About my practice
I am board certified in general preventive medicine and public health, as well as addiction medicine. I believe that medicine should be approached from both a preventive and a treatment standpoint. My area of interest is the treatment of patients with concurrent chronic pain and substance use disorders. We are presently in the midst of an opioid and chronic pain epidemic, and I believe their concurrent treatment is key to curbing each epidemic. I strive to continually acquire new knowledge that will prove helpful to my patients. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t seek to learn something new. I believe medicine should be evidence-based and applied with thoughtful consideration. When I work with patients, I want them to know that they are getting the best version of me! I listen to understand their questions and concerns, so we can make a coordinated treatment plan that appropriately meets their needs.
How I thrive
I thrive by being mindful in thought, work and deed. I enjoy spending time with my husband and son. I strive to be fully present to appreciate all life has to offer.
