About me

I grew up in Minnesota, where I attended St. Olaf College and majored in philosophy and biology while also playing on the soccer team. I attended the University of Minnesota Medical School to fulfill a lifelong dream of becoming a physician. I have always been drawn to the mountains and outdoors, so after medical school I was thrilled to come to Colorado for my pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital Colorado. My husband is a middle school teacher and we have an adorable, energetic son and an equally adorable, energetic dog. There is nothing better than spending time with family and exploring the beautiful state of Colorado that we now call home.

About my practice

It is a pleasure and privilege to be there for families as their children grow up, and to help navigate the challenges that might arise. I enjoy working with parents as a team to develop the best treatment plan for their children. In medicine, the answers are not always black and white, so I prefer a shared decision-making approach where parents are included in the decision-making process and we discuss various options together. I adhere to evidence-based medicine and strongly believe in vaccinations. I will care for your children as if they are my own. I will always go the extra mile for you and your child, and if I don’t know the answer, I will find someone for you that does. I chose pediatrics because I can’t think of a better way to spend my days than to be surrounded by the energy, laughter and even occasional crying of children. Children are the future and working to keep them healthy, safe and happy is the greatest job I could have asked for.

How I thrive

I thrive when I’m being challenged, traveling, exploring the outdoors, and surrounded by friends and family. I enjoy exploring different cultures and helping underserved populations. Some of my most memorable trips during my medical training were to Peru, Ecuador and Tanzania, where I learned invaluable lessons from different cultures and met some of the most generous people in the world. However, I haven’t done much traveling recently as I’ve embarked on a new adventure of parenthood. Watching my young toddler grow is the greatest gift.

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.

Questions? Please call or visit your local Member Services department.

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.
