Clinical Interests
I am a Physician Assistant for the University of Colorado’s Neurology Supportive and Palliative Care clinics. These team-based clinics are open to any patient or family affected by a neurologic or neurosurgical condition. The goals of clinic is to improve the quality of life and reduce suffering for patients and families by helping them with difficult to treat medical symptoms (e.g. fatigue), psychiatric symptoms (e.g. depression), psychological issues (e.g. guilt, grief), caregiver support, spiritual well-being and planning for the future. My specific clinical interests include support of family and caregivers and design of group visit modules for patients and families. I also perform botox injections for sialorrhea (excessive drooling in Parkinson's Disease).

Care Philosophy
I am very interested in care and treatment of entire family coping with chronic neurologic and neurosurgical conditions. I value close communication with patients and families. My role in neuropalliative care program is close follow-up of our patients and I strive to make sure our care is always patient and family-centered.
