About me

I feel very privileged to have grown up in the Vail Valley. I currently live here with my husband and daughter, and have other family members close by. I majored in biology at University of California San Diego. I graduated from the Medical College of Wisconsin in 1999 and spent quality time with my grandparents and extended family. After graduating medical school, I trained in family practice medicine at the University of California Davis. I chose to practice family medicine because I enjoy seeing patients of all ages and stages of life. I returned to the Vail Valley in 2002 and worked in an urgent care and family practice setting.

About my practice

I am very interested in giving my patients a better understanding of their bodies, and helping them to feel and be the healthiest they can be. I am excited by the uniqueness of each patient interaction. I like to foster trust and collaborate with each patient to help them understand their symptoms and medical conditions. I also focus on preventive medicine, complementary medicine, alternative medicine, and traditional western medicine. I speak Spanish to reach more patients. Electronic medical records help me to see the big picture of a patient's health, so I can make good use of our time together and answer my patient's questions.

How I thrive

Being a longtime local in the Vail Valley, I love to ski, golf, boat and camp. When I am at home, I love to read and cook. Staying active and exercising are important to me. Spending time with my husband, daughter and family revitalizes me. When I go on vacation, I often choose to go to a tropical destination where I can scuba dive or sail.

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.
