As a board certified physician in family medicine Dr. Lisa (as she is affectionately known) has been a contributor to the academic programs of the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Rocky Vista University since beginning her family medicine practice in Leadville in the 1990s. In her volunteer professorial role she teaches roughly 15 medical students per year. She explains that teaching and learning go hand-in-hand for her, and that being a professor keeps her current as a lifelong learner.
