Clinical Interests
I am passionate about providing care for all young athletes, from football players to dancers. I have a special interest in running medicine, bone stress injuries, the male and female athlete triad, and relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S).

Care Philosophy
As a pediatric sports medicine physician, my goal is to provide comprehensive care to young athletes, from treating acute and chronic injuries to guiding successful return to sport and injury prevention.

Personal Interests
In my free time, I am a competitive road marathoner but also enjoy running the Colorado mountain trails, hiking, skiing, and cooking.
