I grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, and attended Colby College in rural Waterville, Maine. I have always wanted to be a doctor because the practice of medicine allows me to combine science and understanding the human body with caring for individuals and families. After finishing medical school at the University of Massachusetts in 2013, I moved to Colorado to complete my residency in pediatrics at the University of Colorado. I have been a proud member of the Pediatrics department at Kaiser Permanente since 2016. I am a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
I chose a career in pediatrics because I love seeing children grow and develop. I enjoy helping families through every stage of childhood and adolescence and the myriad challenges and opportunities each stage presents. I love meeting and getting to know kids of all ages and their families and working together to promote their health and well-being. I speak Spanish and English and am happy to conduct visits in both languages. In addition to my clinical practice, I am the medical technology lead for my colleagues in primary care, the champion for transgender care in our department, and sit on our medical office’s patient service committee.
I am happiest when I am able to spend time with my family, exercise regularly, and be outside. In my free time I enjoy running (especially trail running), cooking and baking for friends and family, and traveling. I have also started playing the piano again after a 15-year hiatus.
