Professional Background

As a native of Kansas, I was thrilled to join the KU Department of Pathology faculty in 2019 after completion of my training. I have diverse clinical interests which I ascribe to my varied training experiences at multiple institutions across the country. I particularly enjoy hematopathology, cytopathology, and gynecologic pathology and have been fortunate enough to train with outstanding mentors in all of these fields, including Drs. Kathy Foucar, Fang Fan, and Mark Stoler. I also enjoy teaching, and I am excited to use my skills to participate in the training of the next generation of pathologists.
