My gender: Female
Where I practice
I am originally from Southern California. My husband and I moved out here after college to see what it was like and fell in love with this beautiful state. I completed my medical training in Colorado and feel very fortunate to be caring for patients in my community and working for an organization that I believe in. From a young age, I was influenced by a few profound family health experiences that shaped my desire to become a doctor. I am the first in my family to graduate from college, let alone medical school, and understand the challenges many of our patients and families struggle with regarding health literacy.
About my practice
As a hospitalist, I always tell my patients that I know they did not wake up that morning expecting to see me. You probably did not anticipate having a heart attack, a serious infection requiring hospitalization, or breaking a hip. However, I will be here with you and your family to help navigate the complex and often scary hospital world. I enjoy learning about you and listening to understand your questions and concerns. Although I see patients only in the hospital setting, I will ensure that your primary care provider and specialty doctors know what happened while you were here. I work closely with Kaiser Permanente providers, as well as the hospital care teams, to coordinate your care. Your electronic medical record helps me to see the big picture of your health, so I can make good use of our time together and answer your questions.
How I thrive
When I am not working I am spending time with my husband and our daughter, either enjoying the mountains or exploring new playgrounds and places to eat in Denver. I also love to run trails and races. I practice yoga most days of the week!
