Clinical Interest for Patients
I am interested in hospital medicine: common pediatric illnesses, such as flu and dehydration; infectious diseases of the blood, skin, lungs and kidneys; respiratory illness; chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and asthma; and recovery from surgery or injury.
I feel very honored to meet families and children in a very difficult time when their child is sick. I enjoy the relationship I establish with patients and their families in these circumstances, and it is always a joy to see kids get better and go home.
I enjoy road biking, scuba diving, traveling, hiking, waterskiing, skiing, crossfit, and walking my dog, Boulder.
I volunteered for a week in Haiti May 2010 after the earthquake. I plan to do more volunteer work similar to this in the future.
