Being the oldest of six children, it was natural for Elizabeth to be a caregiver.
“As I became an adult, I enjoyed fighting for those most vulnerable and found that nursing allowed me to do that as a career,” she said. “I chose family practice because I like having close follow up and personal relationships with my patients. Having trust and providing a safe environment are essential to health.”
Following an appointment with Elizabeth, patients can expect to leave feeling they’ve been heard.
“It’s important to me that they are comfortable with the treatment plan that is based on their expertise of their own body and my knowledge of health and wellness,” she said.
Elizabeth is married with three active children and one fur baby. When not working, she enjoys traveling with her family and attending her kids’ sporting events. Steamboat Springs, Colorado, is a favorite place to visit.
