I was born in North Carolina and graduated from the University of Kansas in 2001 with a Bachelor of Arts degree focused in Human Biology. I went on to Emory University’s Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing in Atlanta, Georgia in 2006 and graduated magna cum laude with a BS in Nursing. I received my Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in 2011 and completed my residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology in 2015 at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
I believe in creating a partnership with my patients where we work together to decide on the best options for care. I want my patients to feel comfortable asking me their sensitive questions, with the knowledge that I will always treat them with respect and work to keep them healthy and improve their quality of life.
I love being in a position to be an advocate for and empower women. I started out as a Labor/Delivery nurse and loved it, but I am glad to have had the opportunity to gain additional training as a physician and provide an even higher level of care for my patients. It is an honor and a privilege to take part in bringing new life into the world, and to care for women at all stages of their lives.
I am very close to my family, who live both here in Colorado and in the Kansas City area. I love to travel, read, snowboard, cook, and spend time with friends
