Kaiser Permanente provider
My gender: Female
My office is accepting new patients. Please call 1-855-208-7221.
I consider myself a Colorado native. Although I wasn’t born here, I've lived here since I was three. I completed my undergraduate training at Colorado State University where I studied biology and anatomy. I went to medical school at University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. During medical school, I discovered a passion for managing patients with complex medical issues and internal medicine was a natural fit. I completed my internal medicine residency at University of Colorado in 2007.
As an internist, I think of myself as an adult medicine specialist. I have received extra training in the care of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, congestive heart failure and chronic obstruction pulmonary disease, as well as in keeping seniors active, healthy and independent. I believe that the relationship between physicians and patients is key to achieving excellent health outcomes. I seek to partner with patients in care of the whole person to make treatment plans that meet their needs and lifestyles. I often collaborate with other members of the health care team, such as clinical pharmacists, physical therapists and behavioral medicine specialists.
I aim to maintain a balanced lifestyle. Maintaining a healthy home and work life enables me to thrive. I accomplish this by taking pride in my profession as well as enjoying a number of outside interests. I practice yoga regularly and enjoy hiking in the beautiful Colorado mountains.
