About me

I grew up in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, until I was 18, and most of my family is still there. Chicago was my next stop for college and medical school at Northwestern University. I spent five years at UCLA in Los Angeles for my orthopedic surgery residency. Fellowship in hand and upper extremity surgery was at the University of Rochester in New York. I then returned to Southern California and spent eight years with the Southern California Permanente Medical Group as a hand surgeon at the Kaiser Permanente Baldwin Park Medical Offices. In 2005, my husband, our young daughter and I moved to Boulder to be closer to his family, and I joined Colorado Permanente Medical Group, where I've been ever since.

About my practice

I love hand surgery as I consider it to be one of "the finer things in orthopedics." There is so much going on in a small space, and a great deal of variety in what I see and do every day. I take care of all age groups, from newborns to those much older and everyone in between. We have three hand surgeons here at the Rock Creek Medical Offices and we work very closely together as a team, along with our family practice sports medicine partners, nurse practitioners and physician assistants in orthopedics, to provide comprehensive care for hand, wrist and elbow issues. I really enjoy getting to know my patients, and have many families where I've taken care of the grandparent, the parent and the child. I listen and learn about what is going on with you, and then we'll discuss our options, so you can decide what works best for you. I'm also very good with email communication, if you have questions, need results, or just want to touch base.

How I thrive

My husband is a chemical engineer in the petroleum industry and we have two daughters. A dog has recently joined our family and we have two guinea pigs. We love the many outdoor activities Colorado has to offer, especially skiing, hiking and golf. I play volleyball regularly and enjoy running for fitness. As a family, we love to travel and spend time together. Trying out new recipes is a favorite activity of mine, and my family is great about taste testing. We are big football fans. Being from Wisconsin, I can't help but be a cheese and Green Bay Packers fan!

To find:

  • a Kaiser Permanente provider’s office hours, search our facility directory
  • network providers’ office hours, call their office directly
  • providers in your plan or accepting new patients, call 303-338-4545 or 1-800-218-1059 or 711 (TTY for the hearing/speech impaired) anytime day or night.

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 considers the following factors/criteria as it builds and maintains provider networks:

  • Size and demographics of the population to be served;
  • The inventory of provider types required to serve the population and using practitioner to member ratios and geographic access standards metrics to ensure adequacy;
  • Application of rigorous credentialing criteria encompassing but not limited to educational training, licensing, professional experience, board certification, and professional references.

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.

To report any inaccuracies in the directory, contact Member Services. Members may also report inaccuracies at kp.org/memberservices.

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.
