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. \n\nI am the Medical Director for Community Health and Food & Nutrition at Intermountain Healthcare in Salt Lake City. In addition, I practice Sports Medicine at the LiVe Well Center - Salt Lake City. I am an Adjunct Professor at the University of Utah in the Department of Family and Preventive Medicine.
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. \n\nWhen 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 and a 60 lb chocolate lab who thinks she is a cat.
