I believe in a team approach to health care, with both parents and children being an important part of the child’s healthcare decisions.
I base my recommendations on the most current medical knowledge to guide kids and their families toward better physical and emotional health. My role is to help kids grow and thrive in their environment and to give them the best chance at being happy, healthy adults.
As a pediatrician I love caring for kids – meeting them where they are in their development – seeing them grow from newborns to toddlers, through grade school and into adolescence. I enjoy helping them and their parents navigate all the bumps along the way, and being another trusted adult for kids so they can turn to their physician in times of trouble.
I really enjoy working with the outstanding team at COPA!
When not in the clinic I love to hike, snowboard, backpack, and attend the live outdoor music gatherings. You’ll likely catch me playing with my French bulldog. I also do a great deal of reading.
