About me

I am a board-certified pediatrician with almost 20 years of experience taking care of all types of acute illness, chronic diseases, and preventive medicine from birth through adolescence. I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia, and attended Emory University for college and medical school. I then came to Denver to complete my pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital Colorado/University of Colorado. After residency, I worked as a pediatrician for Kaiser Permanente at the Aurora Centrepoint Medical Offices. I returned to Atlanta and was in private practice there for 14 years. My family and I missed the Colorado mountains and lifestyle, so we moved back to Colorado in 2017. I then worked for Children’s Hospital Colorado/University of Colorado as an instructor in the Department of Pediatrics, Section of Emergency Medicine, and as an urgent care pediatrician. Seeing new patients daily, I realized how much I truly missed the relationships I formed with my patients and their families over time. I am thrilled to return to primary care pediatrics at Kaiser Permanente in my new hometown of Colorado Springs.

About my practice

I am very passionate about pediatrics and thankful for the great opportunity to follow patients through stages of growth. I strive to provide care for my patients just like I would want for my own children. I feel it is a great privilege and honor to partner with parents on the exciting journey of parenthood. I have two sons and I know how challenging and rewarding parenting can be. I have a direct, open and honest style of communication. I believe in staying up to date in my medical practice by incorporating evidence-based medicine with direct guidance from the American Academy of Pediatrics and CDC guidelines. If I don’t know at first how to advise my patients, I will mobilize all my resources to help facilitate the best care possible. My goal is to be a trusted medical resource and advocate to help my patients achieve the best overall health they can.

How I Thrive

I am an avid equestrian and I have a horse that I trail ride and compete in dressage and jumping. I love skiing and hiking in the mountains with my husband of more than 20 years and my two sons. Our black Labrador retriever also likes hiking with us. I enjoy traveling as well.

Kaiser Permanente of Colorado attempts to ensure the online directory contains up-to-date information. However, providers are responsible for notifying of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website.

Kaiser Permanente considers the following factors/criteria as it builds and maintains provider networks:

  • Size and demographics of the population to be served;
  • The inventory of provider types required to serve the population and using practitioner to member ratios and geographic access standards metrics to ensure adequacy;
  • Application of rigorous credentialing criteria encompassing but not limited to educational training, licensing, professional experience, board certification, and professional references.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.
