Professional Background

I have a variety of interests as a Family Medicine physician, however my areas of focus are residency education and the health of women and children. I completed all my training through KUMC, including medical school, MPH and residency training. After residency, I stayed on as faculty in the Department of Family Medicine andamp; Community Health where I have been involved in resident training ever since. I started as core residency faculty and have found myself in the Program Director role since Dec 2017. During this time I completed a faculty development fellowship through a Loyola/University of Chicago program in 2013-14.

As a practicing Family Medicine physician, I provide care to patients of all ages, but I particularly enjoy providing maternity care services and pediatric care. I have been the medical director for our prenatal safety net clinic and Maternity Director for the Residency Program. Along the lines of women's health, I helped start an interdisciplinary Adult Turner Syndrome clinic, collaborating with Audiology, Cardiology, Endocrinology and Psychology. I enjoy team collaboration in any aspect of patient care or medical education training.

My research interests align with my professional interests. Specifically, I have areas of interest in simulation in residency training, interprofessional work as it relates to medical education, faculty development, and Turner's Syndrome. One goal I have with research is to use this as a tool to enhance the experience of our medical learners, incorporating residents and medical students is important.
