I grew up in Littleton, Colorado and went to The University of Colorado at Boulder for undergraduate school. There I earned a Bachelor of Science in psychology. I then went to The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus where I earned a Master of Physician Assistant Studies-Pediatrics. I have practiced in primary care pediatrics since graduating in 2009 and am very excited to have joined Kaiser Permanente in 2015.
I have known for most of my life that I wanted to work with children and am so thankful to get to spend each day caring for and partnering with families. Children bring joy to my every day with their thirst for knowledge, their honesty and keen perception of the world. It is truly a privilege to help families along their journey from the time they have been infants all the way through adolescence. I strongly believe in preventative medicine and I therefore really enjoy well child care and watching as kids grow and change each visit.
I have 2 wonderful children, a very loving husband, and a very feisty dog. Spending time with them is what helps me to thrive. I also have a wonderful family who spends time together often and one our favorite things is to enjoy a great meal outside in the beautiful Colorado weather. I love reading, and devour books whenever I have the chance. I hope to teach my children and patients to do the same!
