Yes, my office is accepting new patients. May require referral.
I'm originally from Sacramento, Calif., but came to Colorado at age 18 to attend CU Boulder where I completed an undergraduate degree in Spanish language and culture, which included a year abroad in Chile. I immediately fell in love with Colorado and knew it was my new home. The only significant time I have spent out of Colorado since arriving was attending nursing school at Columbia University in New York. I returned to Colorado and competed my degree as a family nurse practitioner at CU Denver. Ultimately, I became a nurse practitioner because I want to help people live healthier, happier lives.
Before I was a NP, I was a registered nurse in an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) practice. It was then that I became intrigued by otolaryngology and ultimately why I sought a position as an ENT NP. As a trained family nurse practitioner, I enjoy treating patients of all ages. I enjoy working hand in hand with patients’ primary care providers to get them the best care. I see all types of ENT-related patients and perform most in-office ENT procedures including oral biopsies, incision and drainage of ENT abscesses, nasal endoscopy, flexible laryngoscopy, myringotomy, pressure equalization tube placement (in adults), and wax removal, among others.
I am happily married with 2 sons and 2 rescue puppies. Outside of work, I love experiencing everything Colorado has to offer in the outdoors with my family, as well as Zumba, interval training classes, and playing volleyball.
