About me

I grew up in Ohio but trained in Atlanta and Virginia. My move to Colorado was my first time to live west of the Mississippi River. I met my husband here and we raised 2 sons who are now on their own. Working in a lab, I discovered that I sought more interaction with people and decided to go to medical school. Being a physician has allowed me to combine my love of science with visiting with people.

About my practice

I am an internist but also a geriatrician. In the rehabilitation setting, I work as a team with therapists, nurses and social workers. I like the team approach and learning from others. I consider the patient as the head of the team, who guides us with reports of their symptoms and what is working. If the patient is willing, the family is also a major team member. The goal for the whole team is achieving the best health and function for the patient. I listen and seek to understand my patients’ questions, concerns and goals. Electronic medical records help me to see the big picture of a patient’s health so that we can facilitate their return to optimum health.

How I thrive

I volunteer singing at the bedside in hospitals and nursing homes and I can tell that music heals wounds that medicine cannot. I also like being around young folk and volunteer with them. Volunteering is for myself as much as others. I also love time outdoors with my dog and family.

Information in this online directory is updated periodically and applies to commercial plans underwritten by Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Colorado. The availability of physicians, hospitals, providers, and services may change. To verify whether a provider accepts Kaiser Permanente plans, contact the provider directly. Current provider information is available at kp.org/locations. This information is updated within 72 business hours of receipt from providers. Kaiser Permanente of Colorado attempts to ensure the online directory contains up-to-date information. However, providers are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website. The printed directory is current as of the date of publication. Kaiser Permanente is not responsible for use of outdated directories.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or the practitioner's network, or is obtained as part of the credentialing process. An authorization or referral may be required to access some providers in this directory. If you have questions, contact Member Services.

Referrals to affiliated/contracted physicians/providers in Denver/Boulder

Affiliated/contracted physicians/providers are not part of the Colorado Permanente Medical Group (CPMG). They are physicians/providers who have a contract with the CPMG.

If your CPMG physician decides that you require covered services not available internally from CPMG, he or she will refer you to an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.

You must have a written referral to the affiliated/contracted physician/provider in order for Kaiser Permanente Colorado to cover the services. A referral is a written authorization from Kaiser Permanente for you to receive a covered service from an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.
