Where I practice
I am a Colorado native and grew up in the Arvada area. We left for a brief stint to train in Chicago, knowing we would come and practice back home. I have always wanted to be a pediatrician, which was solidified when my baby cousin was diagnosed with cancer and I was privileged to spend time with him and his doctors. I thrive when I see a patient recover and “high five” me after an illness, listen to a 3-year-old pronounce the word “stethoscope,” or have a parent tell me, "She is sleeping so much better”! Seeing kids grow and live happy, healthy lives brightens my day.
About my practice
I love to partner with patients and their families in proactively raising healthy children. My number one goal is to help children be healthy in mind and body, fostering safe environments for children to explore and grow in the context of their circumstances. I believe in the power of positivity and use humor and fun to engage children and families to lead happy and healthy lives. I take care of the whole child and their family. I love teaching children and their parents about the “how” and the “why” of chronic diseases so they have the least amount of impact. I offer my patients convenience and can often answer their questions by email, phone or video visit. My interests include pediatric research, behavior and development, sleep and sleep disorders, feeding and “picky” eaters, adolescent care and contraception, and urgent care.
How I thrive
I enjoy guiding my two children through the Colorado outdoors, exploring the mountains, biking and snowboarding. I volunteer in special needs ministry at church and with community health centers. I love to cook and bake with my kids but hate cleaning up the mess. I like to travel and admire amazing landscapes.
