After graduating from the CU program in 2002, I worked in adult endocrinology, gastroenterology and internal medicine in Denver. I joined the CHA/PA faculty in 2005 where I served as 1st & 2nd year Clinical Coordinator for five years. Beginning in 2012, I was appointed as the Clinical Site Educator for the CHA/PA program. I truly enjoy visiting with preceptors and clinical sites and sharing the teaching experience.

As the Clinical Services Coordinator, I provide administrative support to the faculty, students, and preceptors. I work closely with preceptors to ensure all necessary affiliation agreements are in place and with students to obtain all required certifications. I also manage the rotation evaluation process. It is my goal to ensure our students receive the highest quality training experience while working in the community.

I am the Course Director for all of the clinical experiences in 1st and 2nd year, as well as the clinical rotations in the 3rd Year. In my role, I am responsible for assessing and grading student performance in a clinical experience or rotation. I am also the point of contact for preceptors with concerns and kudos about student performance in the clinical setting. I joined the CHA/PA faculty in 2016 after working in underserved medicine for 11 years and serving as a preceptor to CHA/PA students and CU medical school students for 8 years. I enjoy working with the students on their clinical skills and firmly believe that early clinical exposure reaps huge benefits for our students.
