I am currently an Associate Professor at National Jewish Health, where I have been a faculty member since 2007. My expertise is in bronchiectasis and nontuberculous mycobacterial(NTM)infections. At National Jewish, I am also the Director of Education for the Division of Mycobacterial and Respiratory Infections. Prior to my faculty appointment, I trained at the University of Colorado in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases. In addition to being the site director for the ID fellowship program, I also host pulmonary and infectious disease fellows from many national universities on our Adult Day Unit for patients with chronic pulmonary infections. In addition to bedside teaching and lectures given both regionally and nationally, I am the director of the Denver TB Course and NTM course which each run annually at National Jewish. I have published several articles related to NTM lung disease. I am currently the lead author on the UptoDate chapter regarding the management of M. avium complex lung disease.
