Are you from Colorado? If not, where did you grow up? What is your favorite thing about where you grew up?
Yes, I am a Colorado native. My favorite thing about living in Colorado is the mountain being so close to Red Rocks. I have always loved attending concerts at this venue.
What is your favorite restaurant in Colorado?
Sadly my favorite restaurants in Colorado are both gone but they were Joseph’s in Denver and Blue Parrot in Louisville/LaFatte.
If you could have lunch with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I would have lunch with my grandma. I miss her very much and she always loved a good story and interesting politics.
Why you chose your job?
I have wanted to be a Pediatrician since I was 7 years old. I still think it is the best choice. I love helping families grow their little ones into great people and getting hugs from my patients and families.
Why you enjoy working at The Youth Clinic?
The Youth Clinic is amazing place to work. I joined the practice almost 20 years ago because I wanted to be a part of a group of providers giving the best and most advanced Pediatric care in the region. I found so much more as the clinic is full of people who always put our patients and families first. It is a terrific group of professionals who every day give their best to make every appointment a great one. The Youth Clinic continues to support my growth as a Pediatrician and my growth as a person.
One of your success story.
I have too many success stories to tell. But I know I have succeeded in my job when I see people out in the world and they are happy to see me!
What advice do you have for your patients/audience?
Believe in yourself, you are doing a great job. Go outside everyday, the sun helps. Tell each other “I love you” at least once a day.
