I was born and raised in Kansas City and moved to Manhattan, KS for undergraduate education at Kansas State University. I returned to Kansas City for medical school at KCU, spending most of my time in Jefferson City, Missouri for clerkships. I was thrilled to return to my hometown for residency at KUMC and be close to family and friends! KU Medical Center has been a wonderful experience and I have been fortunate to have had outstanding mentors during my residency who have allowed me paramount research opportunities and great clinical education. My colleagues throughout residency have become like family and I look forward to coming to work every day. I am very proud to have trained at KUMC. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son.

I am originally from Kansas City, MO and attended KCU for my medical education. I was very interested in staying in the Kansas City area for my medical training and was very impressed with the internal medicine residency at the Unversity of Kansas. I was intiialy drawn to the patient complexities but also by the interactions between residents and their genuine enjoyment of working together. I feel very honored to have been part of such a wonderful group of residents and felt strongly enough to apply for a chief resident position. My career goals are to be a hospitalist and be involved with medical education.

Originally from the great State of Texas, my wife and I first called Kansas City home back in 2010. I am a graduate of KU's combined Internal Medicine & Psychiatry program and am thrilled to stay on as a Chief Resident this year. I was born and raised in the heart of Houston, TX. I attended undergraduate at the University of Texas at Austin and medical school at University of Texas HSC in San Antonio. KU Medical Center is a fantastic place to train for Internal Medicine. It will afford you with a broad clinical experience, exposure to a wide variety of disease processes and outstanding mentorship from dedicated Staff. Of equal importance, you will train amongst a group of supportive colleagues who's camaraderie is second to none. If I could do it over again, I would choose KU without hesitation. I currently live in Prairie Village with my wife and two boys.
