I grew up in Colorado and was fortunate enough to stay in state for my undergraduate and physician assistant studies. I was drawn to the medical profession as a way to blend my love of the sciences and public service in a meaningful way. My husband and I decided to raise our two girls here in Colorado as we love the outdoors and wanted to stay close to family.
As a family practice physician assistant, I enjoy seeing patients of all ages. My physician assistant program offered additional training in pediatrics which I enjoy using daily. I love helping people work toward their health goals through an emphasis on preventative medicine.
I thrive by enjoying time spent with my family. We all love that Colorado has to offer for the wonderful climate which lets us get up and enjoy the mountains as often as we can. I hope to hike the last of my 14ers soon and then start them all over again as my children are gaining interest in hiking too!
