How I fell in love with pediatrics:

I’ve always been drawn to taking care of kids, even before medical school. They are incredibly resilient, and it’s so rewarding to see kids get better. The variety of conditions I encounter and getting to walk with families through challenging situations keep me coming back every day.

  • Physician wellness

Education:

  • BS, Creighton University, 2006
  • MD, University of Colorado School of Medicine, 2010

Three things people may not know about me:

  • I’ve climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro and done the Camino de Santiago.
  • I have an identical twin sister, and we used to work at the same hospital where people would often confuse us.
  • I love experimenting with craft cocktails.
