I am a transplant here to Colorado as of 2007, and loving every minute of it! I was raised in the SF Bay Area, and also lived in Los Angeles, Portland OR, and Jacksonville FL before arriving here - to stay!

I have many years of Event Planning experience, which led me to the University...sort of. After losing my last event planning job due to the recession in 2010, I saw a job posting on this campus in the GME Office, and it said they preferred event planner experience, which is how I came to the University! I was in GME for a year and a half, and while I did not get to put my experience to use, I learned so much more and decided I loved the academic setting. Working with all of the ACGME Accredited programs, I decided that I would love to be on the other end and help run a Residency or Fellowship all the way through instead of doing just a few things with all programs, which is how I ended up in Family Medicine!

I have 1 husband, 2 stepkids (twins!) and 3 dogs whose total weight is about 310lbs! When I am not working I love playing poker, watching movies, rollerskating, and traveling.
