What makes Colorado home to you?

The sunshine, seeing the mountains on a daily basis, the outdoor activities.

What are your passions outside of work?

My husband and two children.

Why did you become an OB/GYN?

I like that it is a good mix of medicine and surgery/procedures. I love caring for women of various ages and at different stages of life.

What in your career are you most proud?

Completing a rigorous residency program.

What is the most important part of your job?

The most important part is the relationship I develop with patients. If patients have a good relationship with me and feel that they can trust me, I can provide better care.

Are you accepting new patients?


olunteer & Community Work:

I volunteer at my children’s school to feel more connected to that community. I periodically participate in medical mission trips to provide care to those that might otherwise have to go without.

Updated Clinic Visitor Policy

Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases in Colorado, we are no longer allowing visitors of any age for clinic appointments. We understand that this is an inconvenience and potential child care cost for our clients but the safety of our pregnant clients, newborns and health care providers is our top priority. Birth Center family/support is still allowed for those in labor. Please call for more information.
