Teller County Coroner
Dear Citizens of Teller County,
I have been employed with the Teller County Coroner’s office since January of 2016 and have two additional years of experience with the Gunnison County Coroner’s office. I am a member of the American Board of Medicolegal Death Investigation, International Association of Coroners and Medical Examiners, and the Colorado Coroner Association.
I am dedicated to this county and all of the people who are in it with all of my heart and soul. I feel it is my job to be the buffer between life and death, to be there for the loved one through something which is very painful. I am heart motivated but backed by the need to know the truth of each case through valid current medical information and or Medical Examiner reports. So I can attempt to provide all the answers which can be provided in the most factual based way possible. As much as I am dedicated to knowing the facts, I am dedicated to the loved ones left to bear the heartbreak of the loss. Their mental and physical health is a concern which should not only be recognized but addressed so that their health is in the best state as possible.
