Title: Family Medicine Resident Physician
Overview: I am passionate about preventative medicine and truly believe that it can transform a patient’s future when both the patient and their doctor work as a team! I believe that caring for patients is something that needs to be done in a holistic manner that takes into account their spirit, their beliefs, their mind and their body. Patients should never be treated as disease or a number and I believe that each interaction I have with my patients is a chance to make a difference in their lives. I have a deep passion for patients, their families and providing ongoing care to my patients in all walks they take in life from family planning to birth, behavioral health, end of life and so much more. I hope to serve as an advocate, partner and confidante to my patients, a role that I feel is a great honor and privilege.
Professional Summary: Areas of special interest: full spectrum family medicine; rural medicine; obstetrics; palliative and end of life care; pediatric medicine; adolescent medicine
Personal Summary: I am from Pueblo, Colorado. There I attended grade school, went to college and met my husband, Adam. I attended the University of Colorado for Medical School and while in search of a full scope rural family medicine training program I fortunately stumbled upon the breathtaking city of Coeur d’Alene and our incredible Family Medicine Residency Program. I choose Coeur d’Alene Family Medicine Residency because I could see the genuine compassion, empathy and commitment to patients from everyone involved in the residency program. My husband and I instantly knew that it would be the perfect place for me to complete my residency program and for him to begin practicing as a chiropractor. We love to spend time together and some of our favorite activities include fly fishing, hiking, hunting, walking our dogs, camping and spending time with our friends and family.
