I am a Board Certified Internal Medicine physician receiving my education at Virginia Commonwealth University (Medical College of Virginia) and spending my residency years at Saint Joseph Hospital in Denver. I grew up on a farm near Sterling, Colorado, where my father taught me the value of hard work. In my early years, I always knew I wanted to be a doctor, seeing the true value of helping people in their most vulnerable state and helping them with the thing that matters most - their health. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing someone struggling at rock bottom, providing advice or a medical intervention, and watching that same person's life changed for the better. I love medicine, and I love people, so primary care is a natural fit. I consider myself to be very personable and caring, and I plan to be more than your doctor - a good friend.
