While growing up in Texas, I always knew from a young age that I wanted to be a doctor. I briefly considered other specialties, but my love for children won out when I had to pick a field. I trained in California and worked for the county with primarily Spanish-speaking patients for 3 years before moving to Boulder, Colorado. Now, I consider myself extremely lucky to be in a job I enjoy, married to my college boyfriend, and the mother of 2 great boys in elementary school. Having 2 young children has helped me to be a better and more understanding pediatrician.
Being an older sister who has always adored children, I love being a pediatrician. Nothing is more satisfying than following a patient from birth to walking and talking to school and beyond. Seeing "my babies" become older siblings and then eventually blossom into teenagers is a real pleasure and privilege. I strongly believe that all children deserve quality health care regardless of economic or social status. I volunteer at the Safe Clinic, a shelter for battered women and children, and I enjoy the diverse population at Hidden Lake Medical Offices where I'm able to use my Spanish and Chinese every day.
I love good food and cooking, so it's fortunate that I'm also an admitted exercise addict. I spend a lot of time running, mountain biking, snowboarding and golfing. Every summer I participate in endurance races, such as 12-hour adventure races and the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race. In the evenings I rest my body and mind by reading books or watching sports with my boys.
