Intermountain Hospital Affiliations

Practice Focus

I provide the following services: sport and exercise medicine from prevention to diagnosis and treatment, sport-related musculoskeletal injuries, cardiopulmonary and other medical issues related to exercise, eating disorder care, exercise prescription for the prevention and treatment of disease, and preventive care and wellness.

I am the Medical Director for Outcomes Research for Clinical Programs at Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City. In addition, I practice Sports Medicine at the LiVe Well Center - Salt Lake City. I am a Professor at the University of Utah in the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine.

Personal Bio & Interests

I have authored many journal articles and textbook chapters on a wide variety of topics in sports medicine. My research interests lie in the areas of physical activity assessment and promotion, practice-based research in primary care, the Female Athlete Triad, and sports injury prevention.

When not seeing patients, I work at my treadmill desk, walking 1.2 miles per hours while working. It provides me the opportunity to walk upwards of 5 miles per day! In addition, I love to hike, ski and ride my bike with friends and family. My husband Jim is also a sports medicine physician, and we have 2 kids ages 12 and 10, along with a 60 lb chocolate lab who thinks she is a cat.
