Clinical Interests
My interests include childhood and adult asthma, seasonal or animal allergies, food allergy and eczema, and chronic sinusitis. I also have a special interest in evaluating the immune system in patients who have had “too many infections” or children who are “always sick”.

Care Philosophy
As a Board Certified Allergist, I will look for potential triggers of allergic diseases in the environment or diet that may be underlying factors that prevent good control of allergy or asthma. I believe that decision making regarding a medical treatment plan involves both the patient and the patient's family.

Personal Interests
I have had asthma and allergies since I was 2 and had a wonderful allergist in Denver who changed my life for the better. I hope to do the same for each patient I see.

Volunteer Activities
School district training for asthma and allergy, Anaphylaxis community outreach, Asthma and Allergy Educational Seminars for the local community

Public Speaking
Yes
I am an Anaphylaxis Community Expert. I am involved in school district training on recognizing and treating allergic or asthmatic emergencies.
