Education: Kansas City College of Osteopathic Medicine
Residency: Kindred Hospital, Kansas City
Board-certified: Family Medicine; Sleep Medicine
Specialties: Adult Sleep Disorders; Pediatric Sleep Disorders
Care philosophy: "I chose to practice medicine because I love to help people feel better. Medicine is a fascinating, complicated, ever changing field where patients are not a ‘one size fits all.’ I especially love working with children and their families. Recently I have ventured into both adult and pediatric Sleep Medicine because I can change lives for the better by addressing sleep health. I want patients to feel empowered with the knowledge and information I can give them through the medical evaluation process. My favorite part of practicing medicine is watching people change their lives for the better. I enjoy reading and attending medical conferences to stay on top of the field. Areas of special interest include Pediatric and Adult Sleep Medicine."
