Why I am a Pediatric Provider?
t’s fun, challenging, and rewarding. Kids ask the most amazing questions. Teenagers do too! Their parents are pretty cool too.
As a child, I loved to watch Muppet Babies, Ducktales, and Bugs Bunny.
Favorite outdoor activity
Hiking and Camping
Favorite trail in Colorado
Crater lakes trail via Moffat Tunnel & No Name Trailhead near Glenwood Springs
I love to craft - sewing, cooking, baking, painting, paper crafting, and felt crafting. Anything that gets me closer to feeling like Martha Stewart. I also rode my bicycle from Seattle to Boston summer of 2002.
Favorite childhood toy
A stuffed animal my mom made me, a dog named “ Bingo.”
