Professional Interests

I will be completing Mallinckrodt's Abdominal Imaging Fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis.


Camping, hiking, cooking, skiing, traveling, tennis, pickleball, spikeball, bear hugging my dog.

What are your favorite things to do in the Denver Area?

We are so lucky to have easy access to the mountains here, so I take full advantage of that during my free time with hiking, skiing (downhill, cross country, and skijoring with my dog), and camping. I have a Denver brewery bucket list I hope to finish before leaving Colorado.
