Where I practice
I love being a Kaiser Permanente physician in Denver and living in Colorado. What a beautiful place filled with such kind and wonderful people! I grew up in the Midwest and moved to Colorado as a teenager. I attended college at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, studying psychology and Spanish language, and then went on to medical school at UCLA in Los Angeles. Training in Los Angeles at the county hospital, Harbor-UCLA, taught me so much. After training, I began to practice emergency medicine in Los Angeles at Kaiser Permanente South Bay Medical Center. In 2014, I had the opportunity to come home to Colorado and to continue to practice medicine in a patient care model I truly believe in. I am blessed to be a part of a compassionate, integrated, patient-oriented ER physician group here in Denver that is dedicated to providing high-quality care to our patients.
About my practice
I chose to be an emergency medicine provider because I have the opportunity to care for everyone. I treat everyone I see in the emergency room as if I am treating one of my family members. I try to make a stressful time in one’s life as comfortable, calm and reassuring as possible. I listen and seek to understand my patients’ questions and concerns. I never know who I will help during my day or what challenges or joys I will face. The variety of my day, patients, and illnesses I help treat make each day in the emergency department rewarding.
How I thrive
I thrive by staying active in our beautiful state. I love being outdoors spending time with my husband hiking and camping in the mountains, road biking, riding the next century bike ride, skiing, and just enjoying the beauty around us.
