About me

I am a Colorado native and have found it hard to leave. I attended the University of Colorado for my undergraduate degree and medical training. I then did my family medicine residency at Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver. I love being a family medicine physician because it gives me the opportunity to connect with people all day long (as well as over lifetimes) and it constantly challenges me with something new with every patient. My husband is also from Colorado and we have a young son who is now a second-generation native. We love being near our family and enjoying the outdoors.

About my practice

Being a family physician is a privilege. I really enjoy building relationships with my patients and getting to take care of people of all ages with a wide variety of conditions. I work to be the best possible partner for my patients in whatever they need at their stage of life—whether it is a listening ear, change in medication, referral to one of my Kaiser Permanente team members, or a hug. My goals are to listen with an open mind, explain my thought processes, educate while also learning from my patients, and formulate a plan that balances evidence-based medicine with their individual needs. I have a specific interest in nutrition and enjoy helping patients make improvements in their lifestyle while striving to be a good example of healthy living myself. I am also interested in community health, women’s health, office-based procedures, and working with developmentally disabled patients.

How I thrive

I thrive by spending time with my family. I enjoy being outside, whether hiking the Colorado mountains or just walking around our neighborhood, playing soccer, cooking and eating a plant-based diet, gardening, reading fiction books, and watching crime shows.

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are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website.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 uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. 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.

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.

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.
