Clinical Interests
I perform complete gynecologic services in the faculty practice. In the Gyn Oncology Division, I focus my skills on the patients with a pre-invasive diagnosis (endometrial hyperplasia, cervical dysplasia and adnexal masses) and often collaborate with our gynecology oncology colleagues as needed. I treat women with a variety of gynecologic issues including abnormal bleeding, fibroids, endometriosis, uterine polyps, contraception, and abnormal PAP smears. I perform gynecologic surgery with a focus on minimally invasive surgery including laparoscopic and robotic hysterectomy, myomectomy, endometrial ablation, and hysteroscopy.

Care Philosophy
I am committed to safe and compassionate women’s care.

Personal Interests
I live in Denver with my husband, two sons and daughter. Away from the hospital I enjoy skiing, hiking, and running marathons.

Volunteer Activities
I am active in community volunteer projects in Denver (clean-up of parks, STD and pregnancy education for teens, promotion of youth sports).
