About me

I grew up in a small town outside of Cleveland but went to both University of Michigan and The Ohio State University for my education so I am full of Big Ten love. I did my training in New York City but then lived in Australia, which ruined my husband and me for the East Coast, so we moved to Colorado. Colorado is like Australia, with its more relaxed and outdoor lifestyle, but not so far from family. I come from a very diverse family with many religions, languages and cultures represented. I speak Spanish and have always sought a connection with the Latino community wherever I work. That said, it’s the diversity of my family’s experience that has made me and has inspired me to travel, live and work abroad.

About my practice

I chose family medicine because of the diversity of experience through the cycles of life – I enjoy pediatrics, teen health, women’s health and internal medicine. I was also drawn to family medicine because the emphasis is looking at the whole patient, the family and the community. I practice evidence-based medicine but believe in meeting each patient where you are and working together. For all the advancement in medicine, I still feel the most important part of health care is the interpersonal, human connections that we make. I look forward to seeing you and enjoy learning about you. I welcome patients of all backgrounds and orientations to my practice and hope everyone finds this to be a safe space. I offer my patients convenience and can answer some questions by email, phone or video visit. I work as a team with our specialists, pharmacists and others to coordinate your care.

How I thrive

I thrive by spending time with my family, hiking, skiing, camping and traveling. I find great stress relief in tending our garden and cooking from it. I love to cook and especially appreciate the challenge of taking all kinds of vegetables, beans and grains and making them into meals my picky kids enjoy.

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.

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.

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.
