Where I practice
I am originally from rural, upstate New York. I moved to Colorado to pursue a fellowship in wilderness and environmental medicine following my residency in emergency medicine in Oakland, California. During my fellowship, I completed a Diploma in Mountain Medicine and spent three months providing volunteer medical care to Everest Base Camp trekkers and local Nepali in a high altitude remote clinic. I love Colorado, its mountains and the lifestyle it provides my family. Kaiser Permanente is a fantastic place to work and I value our mission to provide exceptional and cost-conscious care for our patients.
About my practice
I am here to help you. In the emergency department at Saint Joseph Hospital, my focus is on my patients and their needs. I strive to listen and understand their symptoms and concerns. My goal is to work with each patient to individualize his or her treatment plan. In my roles as a Chat with a Doctor and Telephonic Medicine Center physician, I hope to offer convenience and meaningful advice to members. I appreciate our computerized record as it allows me to review a patient’s health history, communicate with their doctors, and order tests and prescriptions that may save members a doctor’s visit.
How I thrive
I aim to thrive by nurturing my relationships with family and friends, helping others, and staying physically active. I teach wilderness and travel medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and volunteer at ultramarathons in Colorado and internationally. I also have a little son, whose laugh and delight in the simple things keeps me centered and cognizant of what is truly important in life.
