Care Philosophy
I treat people not diseases. Everyone has unique perspectives, priorities, strengths and weaknesses that are important to understand in working towards their health goals. Good communication is critical to this relationship, especially my ability to really hear patients and to communicate my thoughts in a way that is understandable. I am open to admitting when I don’t have the answers and enjoy working with a team of other clinicians.

Personal Interests
In my spare time I enjoy dance of all kinds, history, & hiking in the beautiful Colorado mountains.
