A Coloradan since 2007, I have lived on both coasts and had many wonderful experiences, but have found my place not only in this beautiful state but in the Department of Family Medicine. 

I came to the School of Medicine in 2010, starting in the GME office. My years of event planning helped with the annual orientations of new residents and fellows, and my 10 years at State Farm Insurance helped me with all of the rules and regulations working with the ACGME. After working with all 82 of the ACGME-accredited programs for a while, 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!

My desire and passion for helping others reach their full potential is a great fit here as the GME Coordinator and I truly love my job. When I am not at work, I can be found either playing roller derby, poker, traveling with my husband, or hanging out with my 2 cats and 3 dogs, while scheming to find ways to rescue more!
