About me

I grew up in Lexington, Kentucky, and graduated as valedictorian from Davidson College in North Carolina with a Bachelor of Arts in French. After college I received a graduate scholarship from the Rotary Club to study in the Ivory Coast, a French-speaking country in West Africa. I had completed the pre-med courses in college but decided definitively on a career in medicine after witnessing the suffering in Africa. I felt I could make a significant difference in people's lives as health is central to quality of life. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2004 after working in private practice for 7 years. I currently live in Boulder with my husband, who works in real estate, and my 2 sons.

About my practice

I chose internal medicine because I enjoy working with the whole person. I have a half-time practice where I focus on being a compassionate and knowledgeable physician. After 10 years of practicing in a primary care medical office, I transitioned into my current role in Continuing Care, so that I could focus on a primarily geriatric practice. I find working with this population very rewarding and appreciate the privilege of seeing my patients in their home environments, including long-term care, assisted living and private residences. My practice philosophy centers on treating my patients with dignity and respect and helping them navigate complex decisions in health care to align with their personal goals. I work as a team with our specialists, pharmacists and others to coordinate my patients’ care.

How I thrive

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my 2 sons and am rejuvenated and inspired by watching the joy they find in the simple things of life. I am blessed to have my husband's extended family living near us and enjoy spending time with them. We travel to the mountains frequently for hiking, camping and skiing. Our social interactions are enriched by our participation in a faith-based community in our area. I also enjoy reading and tennis in my spare time.

To find:

  • a Kaiser Permanente provider’s office hours, search our facility directory
  • network providers’ office hours, call their office directly
  • providers in your plan or accepting new patients, call 303-338-4545 or 1-800-218-1059 or 711 (TTY for the hearing/speech impaired) anytime day or night.

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. However, providers are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website. The printed directory is current as of the date of publication. Kaiser Permanente is not responsible for use of outdated directories.

Kaiser Permanente considers the following factors/criteria as it builds and maintains provider networks:

  • Size and demographics of the population to be served;
  • The inventory of provider types required to serve the population and using practitioner to member ratios and geographic access standards metrics to ensure adequacy;
  • Application of rigorous credentialing criteria encompassing but not limited to educational training, licensing, professional experience, board certification, and professional references.

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.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or the practitioner's network, or is obtained as part of the credentialing process. An authorization or referral may be required to access some providers in this directory. If you have questions, contact Member Services.

To report any inaccuracies in the directory, contact Member Services. Members may also report inaccuracies at kp.org/memberservices.

Questions? Please call or visit your local Member Services department.

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.
