Yes, my office is accepting new patients. May require referral.
I was born and raised in Overland Park, Kansas. I initially went to college to become a vet. My Aunt Dorothy talked me into nursing, as she thought I would take in every stray pet! We moved to Colorado in 1984. I obtained my RN degree at Regis University in 1991, and then received my nurse practitioner degree there in 1996. I have been honored with two medical mission trips to Haiti and Jamaica—what an amazing and humbling experience. A very proud moment for me was being awarded the annual customer service Gold Star Award at Presbyterian St. Luke's Hospital.
Most of my career has been on family medicine and cardiology, but over the past several years, I shifted focus when I discovered a tremendous need to advocate for the elderly. My 91-year-old mother once told me, as an older person, that she felt invisible. She no longer felt valued. That broke my heart. I am now a champion for the elderly population. I have always thought the best way to help an individual is to meet them in their own home. As my patient, you will always feel listened to. Whether you are describing a symptom, or telling me how your day was, I will give you 100% of my attention. It is your story I want to hear. Help me help you figure out your best path to wellness. Together we can create your health vision.
Colorado is the perfect home for me! I spend a great deal of time hiking, cycling, snowshoeing, and gardening. I also love spending time with family and friends, taking piano lessons, going to my son's ranch to ride horses, and cooking—especially a big pot of delicious soup. My three grandchildren are the most wonderful kiddos, and I love when they come to Nana Camp! We recently had to say goodbye to our 16-year-old lab mix, Aspen. Time with our four-legged friends is never long enough, but someday we will rescue another puppy.
