"I was born in Ohio, but lived all over the United States before I even entered middle school. My parents, siblings, and I moved to Northern California at that time, and I lived there until last year when my wife and two kids landed in Colorado after a three month cross country road trip. We are so happy to be in this beautiful place. I received my Masters Degree in Social Work (MSW) from San Francisco State University in 2011. I have worked with kids and families since I was 15. My first job was at the Boys and Girls Club. Since then, I have worked in adolescent residential treatment as a counselor, as a counselor in middle schools and high schools, and most recently as a social worker in county child welfare. I am passionate about helping children and families work through any and all issues that they are facing and I bring an open, caring, and nonjudgmental approach to the work. I feel honored to join the Arvada Pediatrics team and look forward to helping support youth and families."
