I am a southern transplant from Memphis, Tennessee. I grew up in Memphis with my parents and my brother. My mother was a nurse and my father was an owner of a Ford dealership, so my love for medicine and Ford Mustangs is now my passion. I attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, for college and then the University of Tennessee, Memphis, for medical school. After residency, I moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee, where I was in private practice for 16 years. I moved to Colorado in August 2011 for the opportunity to be a primary care physician with Kaiser Permanente.
I like to make people feel comfortable and break down the complexity of medicine so patients can make their own choices. I love to laugh and hear a good story.
I thrive on skiing, football, road biking and Mustang convertibles. I love a good biography and hiking with my German Shepherd, Watson. I am a huge sports fan, especially football (professional as well as college). Denver is an exciting city with so many professional sports teams, particularly the Broncos.
