  I have the distinct privilege of working in an environment that is committed to helping a diverse group of clients.  It is very satisfying to serve in a clinical setting that provides outstanding patient care for mental, emotional and relational well-being.  The staff, faculty and clinicians are very talented and dedicated to helping our patients get well.

I have enjoyed working for UCH and the Department of Psychiatry for over 20 years. I have developed some wonderful relationships with co-workers, Residents and amazing Faculty doctors. I’m truly happy to be part of a team that provides quality care to patients that often have difficulty getting services.  For me, it’s all about providing good customer service in an atmosphere that is courteous, professional and respectful.

  I always knew I wanted to work with people, but it wasn’t until the end of my second year in college that I knew clinical social work was the career for me.  After obtaining my bachelor’s degree, I completed the Master of Social Work program though Ohio State University’s College of Social Work.  I spent the first five years of my career in Ohio, largely working with high-risk adolescents and families, before moving to Colorado and joining the University of Colorado Hospital Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic in 2010.  I am truly passionate about this line of work and thoroughly enjoy effectively working through the various challenges clients present to me on a daily basis.

I have been with University of Colorado Hospital for almost 4 years and have been to 2 other departments within the hospital.  I feel like the department of Psychiatry is a place that I can show patients and co workers my true caring personality and make them smile.  I also enjoy cheering people up, and turning their bad days into good days.   I feel that life is too short so enjoy it and life is better when you can wake up with a smile on your face or at least put a smile on someone else’s face.
