juvenile myositis, systemic sclerosis
My passion is treating pediatric patients with all rheumatic diseases, especially those with juvenile myositis and systemic sclerosis. I practice patient and family centered care, with the idea that as a physician, my job is to educate patients and families about their symptoms, diagnoses and treatment options, and together we come to decisions about treatment plans.
I am an avid animal lover and enjoy traveling with my husband Adam, especially to places where there are exotic animals and/or tropical landscapes. We enjoy hiking Colorado trails with our dog Hazel.

I enjoy educating medical trainees and practicing health care professionals about the early recognition of pediatric rheumatic and musculoskeletal disease.
