Hobbies

I live in Boulder where I enjoy trail running with my dogs, usually we're training for a local trail race. I also have a large vegetable, flower, and native plant garden that I tend to with my husband and our two young children.  When I'm not gardening or out running, I love to cook or unwind with a glass of wine or a Colorado brew.

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

I am a Boulderite, so I typically only venture down to Denver for concerts or to visit a favorite restaurant. Most of the time, I am out on the trails in Boulder or Indian Peaks running with my dogs or hiking with my kids. 

What is the biggest strength of our program?

The biggest strengths of our program are the phenomenal people and the tremendous volume and complexity of cases we read. Even the busiest and most stressful call shifts are overall a great experience because you’re in it with a great team, working hard, and learning from excellent cases. I’ve found a great community here of people who are willing to support my research and interests every step of the way.
