Care Philosophy
I strive to provide the best care for my patients and families. I believe in treating the person as a whole, taking every aspect of a patient's body and health into consideration during diagnosis and treatment. I like to use a holistic approach to all my patients.

Personal Interests
I have a daughter in college and I still like to watch soccer. I have a big black dog from the Denver Dumb Friends League and love to play with her. I am on a curling league and have been playing for one year.

Volunteer Activities
I am involved in disabled sports and have been a junior board committee member for over 10 years working with WASUSA. I have worked multiple competitive events for sports for the disabled. I volunteer locally and am always trying to find a sport for every child with a disability to participate.
