Professional Background

After earning my osteopathic medical degree in 2003, my postdoctoral work (internship, neurology residency and clinical neurophysiology fellowship) were done at the University of Kansas.

Upon graduating from fellowship, I practiced in the community until returning to KUMC on faculty in 2013. I have since been a member of the KU Department of Neurology (and continue to practice general neurology). In 2020, I joined the department's leadership as division chief of the Community Neurology Division.
