Clinical Interest for Patients
My clinical interests include multidisciplinary care of adolescents and adults with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), transgender youth, procedural dermatology, vascular malformations, skin of color and global health. My background in Pediatrics and Dermatology allows me empathize with my patients so that they can feel comfortable in challenging clinical settings. I am trilingual (English, Spanish and French) and welcome our diverse patient population using the language of their choice. I practice medical and cosmetic dermatology. I perform laser hair removal for excess hair and diverse procedural modalities to treat acne scarring.
I strive to provide compassionate, personalized and high-quality care to all my patients with the ultimate goal of improving their quality of life.

I participate in a multi-disciplinary clinic for adolescent and young adult women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) at Children’s Hospital Colorado, the only Pediatric PCOS clinic in the country to include dermatology in the physician panel.
