About me

I have been a nurse practitioner for more than 25 years. I grew up in Southern California and received my Bachelor of Science in nursing from Long Beach State then my master’s from Boston University. I started my career in internal medicine and had the privilege of transferring to the department of dermatology 14 years ago after my son was born. With excellent physician support, I happily made the transition to dermatology. In my 25 years with Kaiser Permanente, I was awarded Outstanding Nurse Practitioner in 1995 and received the Legendary Service Award in 2004. This past year I passed a test and I’m now a dermatology certified nurse practitioner.

About my practice

My initial certification is as an adult nurse practitioner so I prefer to see members in their teens and up. My interest and expertise is in skin cancer surveillance. I identify biopsy and treat non-melanoma skin cancers on a daily basis. I enjoy working with seniors and all the skin issues that develop with aging sun damaged skin. Growing up in Southern California, I also fried my skin weekly and can relate to the challenges of keeping healthy skin. I also enjoy treating acne for members of all ages. My philosophy is to provide you with information and let you select the best course of therapy for your skin. I have seen the same members for years and have been able to establish an ongoing friendly relationship with all of them.

How I thrive

I enjoy spending time with my husband and son. I have two dogs and enjoy walking. I recently started golfing. I enjoy reading, movies and travel as much as I can.

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.

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.
