She completed her Neurocritical Care fellowship with the University of Pennsylvania.

What do you do in your spare time?

Balance time between my family and spending time in the mountains, both amazing aspects of living in Colorado Springs. My favorite hobby is hiking and I feel so fortunate to have the ability to live close to the mountains.

What did you learn from your mom?

Self-empowerment comes from strength, courage, and always being kind to yourself and others. Don’t be afraid to take chances, be vibrant in who you are, and experience life.

What is one of the things you would put on your bucket list? 

I’ve always wanted to go on a medial mission outside the United States and be a part of providing medical care and education to those in need of that service.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? 

Everywhere-there are so many places I haven’t had time to explore. Perhaps I would start with Southeast Asia, Thailand.
