Curriculum Vitae

Clinical Practice
I have been a nurse practitioner since 1999, after obtaining a Master’s of Science in Nursing at the University of Colorado College of Nursing. My focus has been entirely in working with neurology patients, first in the outpatient neurology clinic at Denver Health Medical Center and then, since 2008, in the Neurosciences outpatient clinic at the University of Colorado Hospital. As an adult/geriatric nurse practitioner, I have worked with patients ranging from young adults to the elderly who have various neurological disorders including strokes/TIAs, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, headaches, and dementia. My focus in following these patients is to help them make informed decisions regarding their treatment, to educate and help empower them, and to support them and their families through the stages of their illness.
