Clinical Interests
I am a primary eye care provider at the UC Health Eye Center, which is part of the University of Colorado School of Medicine Department of Ophthalmology. This year marks my thirty-second year in practice. I enjoy providing eye and vision care to individuals with ocular health issues ranging from ocular muscle misalignment treatable with glasses, diabetes (especially those who need more education about the impact of the disease on the eyes), patients developing cataracts to individuals with movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease. For four years, I have been participating with neuro-ophthalmologist Victoria Pelak, MD in a sub-specialty clinic to improve delivery of care and outcomes for individuals with movement disorders. I make every effort to help my patients understand their eyes and visual function.

Personal Interests
I enjoy being outdoors gardening at home, walking in my neighborhood and hiking in the mountains. My husband and I built a small home in South Park (the real one, not the tv show) over the course of ten years. We have raised three children as Colorado natives. We are almost "empty nesters!"
