Hi! I’m the Practice and Billing Manager here at Pediatrics of Steamboat. I’ve lived in Steamboat since I was 14, when I moved here to go to Steamboat Mountain School and ski race. Since then, I’ve gone to college in Vermont, coached skiing, taught school, and been the Medical Staff Coordinator at YVMC for 12 years.
My husband Erik and I have 2 boys, Brodie and Quinn, born in 2004 and 2007. We also have a crazy yellow lab named Sylvie, 2 fish and 2 hamsters. We love to ski, play games, camp, and have adventures together as a family.
My career began as an RN in the pediatric intensive care unit in Phoenix, where I met my husband Ron. We married, moved to Steamboat Springs, and shortly thereafter opened Pediatrics of Steamboat Springs. As Pediatrics has grown over the past 19 years, my job has morphed from RN to office manager to my current position as business manager.
