I was born and raised on the Western Slope of Colorado. I moved to Fort Collins after high school to attend CSU. I graduated from CSU with a degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition in 2002. I attended graduate school in North Chicago at Rosalind Franklin University where I earned a Master’s of Science in Physician Assistant Studies. After graduation I moved back to Fort Collins to be with my now husband, Todd, also a Colorado native and CSU alumni.
I have been with the Women’s Clinic since 2005. I have been interested in OB-GYN since I was in high school. I love being able to educate women on healthy lifestyles throughout all ages and stages of life, including pregnancy and the post-partum period. I can relate to the challenges of being a woman and understand the frustration of changes with age. I feel lucky to have patients that are motivated to stay healthy and also patients that are fun to visit with throughout the years I’ve spent getting to know them.
In my free time I like to do anything active with my husband and our 3 young sons. We love spending time at our mountain home skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and admiring the stars. I play tennis regularly and I love running and yoga. My boys are busy with every possible sport we can fit in our the schedule, so we spend a lot of time making sure we are really enthusiastic youth sports fans, meanwhile juggling all the challenges of work and life.
