Specialty Information

Specialties
  • Pediatric Cardiology, Board Certification
  • Pediatrics, Board Certification
  • Clinical Genetics and Genomics (MD), Board Certification
Clinical Interests
Marfan syndrome, Loeys Dietz syndrome, Vascular-type Ehlers Danlos syndrome, Familial aortic aneurysm and dissection syndromes, Turner syndrome, Williams syndrome, Noonan-spectrum disorders, Metabolic cardiomyopathies, familial cardiomyopathy, and familial congenital heart disease.

Care Philosophy
I provide specialized care of individuals with genetic forms of cardiovascular disease. As a Clinical Geneticist and Pediatric cardiologist, I am in a unique position to diagnose the underlying etiologies of congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies and aortopathy in children and adolescents. I treat many children with these conditions as their cardiologist; I also serve as a resource and consultant to pediatric cardiologists within our practice and in the greater Rocky Mountain region.
