After completing a residency in pediatrics, she went on to practice pediatrics for the next 17 years in Indiana before moving to Colorado in 2004. While in Colorado, she continued a part-time adolescent medicine practice but also served as President/CEO of Life Network, a non-profit organization in Colorado Springs that provided physical, financial, and emotional support for women and men facing unintended pregnancies, as well as mentoring for young parents and sexual risk avoidance (SRA) education presentations in local middle and high schools.
