I provide direct patient care as part of the medical team at the Health and Counseling Center. I offer a wide range of primary care services. My areas of interest are medical treatment of eating disorders, reproductive health, and mental health. I practice under a health at every size model and strive to provide holistic care individualized to each patient.

Professional Biography

By attending PA School in the US Virgin Islands, I learned the importance of slowing down and listening to provide thorough medical care. This approach has been the foundation of my practice wherever I go. Before working at DU, I practiced family medicine at a community clinic in Sacramento, CA, and at a private practice in Boulder, CO. I am a certified Physician Assistant through NCCPA, and a member of the Pi Alpha Honor Society for Physician Assistants. I am also certified in basic life support, advanced wilderness life support, and Nexplanon insertion/removals.
