Expert Witness & Consultant
I have been practicing emergency medicine since 1999 and currently serve a broad spectrum of patients, including the critically ill, at a Level 2 trauma center in Denver, CO. I review malpractice cases regularly as a faculty member for COPIC insurance company. Additionally, I am an assistant professor of medicine at Rocky Vista University School of Medicine.
My specialized area of interest and expertise is in the field of hypothermia. I have lectured, provided opinions for insurance companies, been in True Crime podcasts and testified in a criminal murder trial regarding hypothermia issues.
I have practiced for 20+ years in a variety of community hospital settings. Serving in leadership and teaching positions has enabled a broader growth within my practice. I am currently on the board of directors of our 200+ physician practice entity as well being on the board of directors of our larger management company. Additionally I proudly serve as an educator of physician assistants, as I am on the physician assistant academy faculty of Carepoint, PC. I am board certified through the American Board of Emergency Medicine.
I trained in residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, where I served as chief resident during my final year. Prior to residency, I completed medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
