I am certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner, and have been in practice since 1999.  Before relocating to Colorado in 2001, I worked as a nurse practitioner in Pennsylvania.  I care for patients of all ages in a primary care setting.

My work as a nurse practitioner is very fulfilling for me.  I enjoy working with patients toward a health goal.  I believe that my work makes a difference in the lives of my patients and appreciate the relationship aspect of the care I provide to patients.


My research interests are in preventive care.  I am particularly interested in physical activity adherence.  I am working on a Ph.D. dissertation related to physical activity. 


I have volunteered as medical staff at local triathlon and swimming events.  Additionally I volunteer in various capacities at my church.
