I am a Denver native and have a deep appreciation for time outdoors, mountains and sunshine. I have left several times but keep on coming back! After growing up here and graduating from the University of Colorado in Boulder, I moved to Boston where I met my husband. We returned to Colorado for medical school at CU. I completed my pediatric residency and chief resident year in Madison, Wisconsin, at the University of Wisconsin and American Family Children’s Hospital. Both our love of cheese and our family grew while living in Wisconsin. We now have two active, wild and crazy boys. We came back to Colorado after training to put our roots down in the place that I call home.
Working as a pediatrician is such a privilege! I get to partner with parents for yearly well visits where we will monitor your child’s growth and development, as well as work together to get your child well when they are sick. I love the full spectrum of ages in pediatrics, from infancy to adolescence, and the unique challenges that happen each step of the way. I will do my very best to understand you and your child’s needs each time we meet, and will aim to provide the best advice, guidance and support. Parenting is a challenge but I am here to help guide you when you need it and to cheer for you with each success. You've got this!
"We can do hard things." – Glennon Doyle Melton. I believe in this quote and it really sums up how I thrive. From Outward Bound to running marathons to raising children, I truly enjoy and get energy from doing things that are challenging. In addition, my family is the center of my universe and the things we do together are the things that I love best. We enjoy camping, vacations, reading books at bedtime, bike rides, snuggles on the couch, and sharing our best part of the day (BPOD) at dinnertime.
