What makes Colorado home to you?
I have lived in Colorado since middle school. I have known people here for most of my life. It is wonderful to go places and see so many people from different seasons in my life. Colorado has provided me with a wonderful playground to enjoy all of my outside activities. I could never leave this beautiful state!
What are your passions outside of work?
I love to hike, bike, horseback ride, snowshoe, listen to music, make and see art. I am very involved in Community Service and currently work at the food bank at church. I love to tie the community together and frequently host events in my neighborhood/home. Finally, I have been on the Legislative and Executive Committees for ACOG, (The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) so that I can be a leader in Women’s Health Care. I am currently working on a Bill for the State of Colorado. Please feel free to ask me about it.
Why did you become an OB/GYN?
This specialty allows me to walk beside my patients from birth to death. I love the interaction and relationships that develop over the years. Knowing a patient for a long time allows me to care for her better. I also love the clinical, obstetrical and surgical aspects of this specialty of medicine.
What in your career are you most proud?
I am most proud of my award Volunteer Physician of the Year for the Medically Underserved, presented by the Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved. I am also proud of the legislation that I have worked on over the decades.
What is the most important part of your job?
I want to make a deep connection with patients I see, each and every day so that I can care for their total beings.
