About me

I grew up in New York’s Hudson Valley before attending The Pennsylvania State University, where I studied biochemistry, molecular biology and economics. I graduated with honors and then moved to Chicago to attend Northwestern University Medical School. I graduated with membership in AOA, the medical honor society. I was drawn to plastic surgery by the artistry and the technical nature of the surgery. It reminded me of painting or sculpting, passions of mine growing up. I spent one vigorous year of training at Loyola University Medical Center with a focus on plastic surgery, trauma and burn surgery. I then completed my plastic surgery training at Stanford University. I founded my own plastic surgery practice in San Francisco prior to joining Kaiser Permanente. I am happy to return to Denver where my family has roots. I am a diplomat of The American Board of Plastic Surgery, the highest level of certification for plastic surgery. I was honored to be recognized as a 5280 Magazine Top Doctor in 2018.

About my practice

My practice includes cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and body. The relationship between the patient and surgeon forms the basis for navigating the process. To strengthen this relationship I have developed several founding principles. 1. Every surgery, whether aesthetic or reconstructive, deserves the same artistic attention. 2. Patient trust is earned by thorough education, honesty and integrity. 3. Each patient's unique desires shall be addressed with empathy and sensitivity to privacy and individuality. 4. Sound surgical judgment based on science, safety and evidence is critical. 5. Absolute precision and meticulous technique shall be applied to every surgery.

How I thrive

I thrive by making time for my family and the wonders Colorado has to offer. I also enjoy challenging myself while driving on the race track. Finally, I love music and at one point in my life was a DJ.

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.
