I was born in Kansas City, Missouri and graduated from the University of Kansas, Lawrence 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 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
