Dr. Becky Gaensbauer

Dr. Becky Gaensbauer grew up on a small farm in Minnesota where she was active in 4-H, track and field and developed a love of animals, gardening and snow.   

She was an undergraduate at Brown University and competed in England & Ireland on the track team.  She majored in Development Studies and became interested in global health. This interest led her to complete her Master’s in International Health at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, and took her to American Samoa, South Africa, Nepal, Saint Lucia and Guatemala.  

After an initial career in public health and shepherding her two children through the preschool years, she went back to medical school in Cork, Ireland before moving to Denver for Pediatric residency.  After residency, she served as a global health fellow and worked with local refugee organizations.  

Dr. Becky loves working with children of all ages and is excited to be part of Children’s Medical Center.  On her time off, she and her family try and recreate farm life in the city with a dog, cat and three chickens (the rabbit passed away and my husband is balking at a hedgehog).  She continues to love gardening and has several fruit trees, berry plants and vegetable gardens.  Other hobbies include reading, knitting, baking and travel.
