Where I practice
Born in Poland, I spent most of my childhood in Maine and then attended college at Dartmouth in New Hampshire. I had the privilege to both work and complete my anesthesiology training in Northern California. Although we loved the Bay Area, my husband and I decided we’d rather raise our family closer to the mountains. I chose to become a physician because I thrive when I am around people and love to nurture and care for others. I am most proud of the fact that my family immigrated to the United States and that I am the first person in my extended family to complete college.
About my practice
I chose to practice anesthesia because I feel honor in putting patients at ease prior to major life events such as surgery and enjoy the management of patients in the surgical setting. In addition, anesthesiologists play an important role in the perioperative setting by coordinating patient care and providing pain management both before and after surgery. I am fellowship-trained in regional anesthesia, and I specialize in performing peripheral nerve blocks and managing acute pain. I consider myself as a person who is easy to talk to and one who puts others at ease. I hope my patients feel the same and can express their concerns and fears with me in the perioperative setting.
How I thrive
The ease of getting outdoors is the main reason my husband and I chose to raise our family in Colorado. We are energized by the sun, mountains, and rivers, and love to spend any amount of time outside, whether it is to ski, fish, hike, swim, or simply breathe in the fresh mountain air. If we’re not in the mountains on the weekends, you can find us spending time with family and friends.
