Care Philosophy
My primary goal is providing safe family-centered care for every child who is admitted to the hospital. Although I now specialize in hospital-based care, I previously worked as a general pediatrician and highly value primary care providers' expertise. I think of hospital stays as only one part of a child's overall health care, and want to partner with children, their families, and other health care providers to ensure seamless medical care when children need to be in the hospital. As telehealth medical director for the Children's Hospital Colorado health system, I am also working to ensure that children have access to every type of care that they need at the right time, no matter where they live.
