About me

Although I'm originally from California, I knew Denver would be my forever home after I met my husband in college. We felt that Denver was an amazing place to call home, with access to the mountains, our favorite outdoor activities, a diverse population, and a back-to-basics feel. We also love having the opportunity to raise our three children here, in close contact with all that Denver has to offer. Being able to find a career with Kaiser Permanente doing pediatric anesthesia, the career I fell in love with in medical school, made my picture of life in Denver complete! I can't say enough about the organization, my coworkers, and how fulfilling it is to have a profession that allows me to feel so intimately involved in caring for children.

About my practice

As a medical student, I had the opportunity to take part in a pediatric anesthesia rotation. I knew that I loved anesthesia, but being able to care for children and their families was icing on the cake. As a parent myself, I understand how terrifying it can be to trust the care of your child to a stranger. I work to put your fears at ease and really establish a relationship with you. Taking care of children means addressing not only their specific medical concerns, but also the emotional concerns of the child and their parents, and I love that aspect of my job: treating the whole. My practice is open to all ages, but I have special training in pediatrics, having completed a fellowship at Children's Hospital.

How I thrive

I thrive by staying active with my young family in all that Colorado has to offer. My career exercises my mind and professional aspirations, while my environment and the place I have chosen to live exercise my body and spirit. I enjoy getting outdoors as much as possible with my children and husband, breathing the fresh air and seeing the mountain vistas.

Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.
