Kim Horiuchi, MD      

Kim Horiuchi, MD – Epilepsy Fellow
Kim’s interest in Medicine began at the young age of 8, when she was given a Fisher-Price doctor’s kit, complete with plastic stethoscope, otoscope and reflex hammer. Kim is a native of Colorado and attended University of Colorado at Boulder, obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology and Psychology. She also attended University of Colorado School of Medicine for her medical degree and has continued her training with UC Neurology. While not in the hospital, Kim enjoys spending time with her loved ones, including her dog, Dexter, watching movies, snowboarding and baking assorted pastries.

       
Eryn Lonnquist, MD  

Eryn Lonnquist, MD – Neurobehavior Fellow
Eryn got her BS in Biochemistry from Colorado State University and stayed in Colorado for both medical school and residency. She has a particular interest in Functional Neurologic Disorders (Conversion Disorder) and during her clinical fellowship in Behavioral Neurology and Neuropsychiatry, she created a referral clinic for patients with FND in order to provide focused treatment as well as to learn more about this disease in order to inform future research projects. Since completing the clinical BNNP fellowship, she was accepted into a two-year research based fellowship through the Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Centers (MIRECC) at the Denver VA. She has maintained her involvement with her FND clinic at UH and additionally has a Dementia clinic at UH. In her free time, she likes to run in the mountains and do yoga. When her 100lb fuzzy dog wants to get in on the fun, they camp, go on walks to the ice cream store, and dig in the garden together.

     
Angel Pulido, MD  

Angel Pulido, MD – Vascular Fellow
Angel was raised in South Texas and moved to Austin where he majored in Biology at the University of Texas. He attended medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where his interest in Neurology started in his neuroscience course and grew during his clinical years. He completed his intern year here at the University of Colorado, and is very excited to be a part of the Neurology program. Angel and his wife, Laura, love living in Denver. They have been enjoying much of what Colorado has to offer including skiing, biking, and going to fun festivals in the city throughout the year.

   
 

Jessica Hedeman D.O.  

Jessica Hedeman D.O. - Movement Disorders Fellow
Jessica was drawn to the neurologic sciences early on in medical school finding it a challenging and fascinating area. This interest was confirmed during clinical rotations at the hospital and choosing neurology as a specialty was an easy choice. She completed medical school at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, in her home state, and stayed on to complete her neurology residency in Farmington Hills, Michigan. She found working with patients with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders particularly satisfying and interesting and therefore is completing a Movement Disorders Fellowship at the University of Colorado. It is a very exciting time to be in a field when treatment options are changing and novel, innovative treatments such as Deep Brain Stimulation is becoming more common place. Colorado has been a wonderful place to live and work so far as I appreciate wearing my sunglasses nearly every day on my way to work and looking at the mountains on my drive home.

     
Sailaja Enduri, MD  

Sailaja Enduri, MD - Neuromuscular Fellow
I was raised in the southern part of India, and my interest in medicine developed during my high school years. I pursued my medical degree at Sri Venkateswara medical college in Tirupathi, India. After medical school, I joined the Mayo clinic in Rochester, MN, as a research assistant where I did major work in stroke. This research led me to pursue my career in neurosciences. I finished my neurology residency at Michigan State University followed by a fellowship in clinical neurophysiology. Over the course of my residency and fellowship years, I found working with complex neuromuscular disorders fascinating. Hence, I joined the neuromuscular fellowship at the University of Colorado. I love spending time with my family, practicing yoga, and watching movies.
