Medical School: University of Kansas-Kansas City

I grew up in Pittsburg, KS, and completed my undergraduate degree in biology at Pittsburg State University. From there, I moved to KC and to attend medical school at The University of Kansas (Rock Chalk!). Halfway through med school, I took a year off to pursue a Master’s in Public Health. While earning my degree, I studied and conducted research on incarcerated men. 

My passions for medicine are focused on care for the underserved, community engagement and the advocacy realm. For me, Mizzou is the perfect place to continue my training because of its wealth of resources, flexibility and strong ties to the community. 

In my spare time, I enjoy trail running, home improvement, painting and hanging out with friends and family.

A lifelong Midwesterner, I grew up on my family’s farm in central Illinois. After spending time near Chicago for medical school, I am so glad to be back in Cardinal territory! I knew right away that University of Missouri Family Medicine Residency was the place for me. The faculty and residents made the program feel like home, and the program’s strength and prominence within the University system were important factors in my residency decision. To me, Mizzou Family Medicine offers the best of both worlds: training in a large academic center with the ability to have outpatient clinic in a rural community. 

I chose to practice family medicine because of the opportunities I have to develop meaningful relationships with my patients. I believe that family medicine will give me the chance to positively impact my patients’ and community’s health. During medical school, I loved that no two days were the same in the family medicine clinic, and I look forward to seeing that in my practice. I have great passion for rural medicine and plan to put down roots in a rural community when I finish residency. 

My husband, Eddie, and I were blessed with our first child, Gabriel, in January, and we truly love being his parents. We are excited to make Columbia our home and enjoy all of its outdoor activities, especially taking our Golden Retriever, Dallas, to Columbia’s awesome dog parks. Food is my love language, so you’ll often find me dining at new restaurants around town or in the kitchen making meals and treats for my family and friends.

Medical School: AT Still University-Kirksville, MO 

I was raised on a small farm in Grand Island, NE, and as a child, I competed in rodeo and sporting events. As an undergraduate at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, I played soccer and continue to be a Husker at heart. Eventually, I decided to join the military and began my career as a combat medic. I met my husband Ben, a fellow combat medic from Nebraska, in the military.

I served as a combat medic and flight paramedic in the military, and it was while serving in these roles that I discovered how much I loved caring for people and decided to become a doctor. During my third year at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, Ben and I had our daughter, then two weeks later he was accepted into MU’s physical therapy program. At first, it was tough being Husker fans and living in Columbia, but Ben and I have come to love Missouri and hope to stay here long-term.

I enjoyed every rotation during medical school and liked helping patients of all ages, so choosing family medicine was an easy decision for me. When I interviewed at MU Family Medicine, I liked everyone and knew the program was top notch, so my decision to train at MU was an easy one, too.

I still like playing soccer and for fun, we enjoy our dog, three cats, camping, playing cards, fishing and outdoor games. We especially enjoy taking our daughter to Columbia’s beautiful parks and trails.

I decided to become a family physician because I love children, adults and geriatric medicine. The variety in the care I give and the patients I see keeps my days interesting. I appreciate the opportunities I have to learn and do small procedures. Additionally, I want to become competent in women’s health care. My goal is to become a rural physician, so doing procedures and knowing about women’s health will enable me to better serve my patients and my community.  

Mizzou: I have always been here, so it does and always will feel like home. I never considered going anywhere else for my residency training.

I grew up in Washington, MO, which is between Columbia and St. Louis on the Missouri River. I earned my undergraduate degree from Saint Louis University and my medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, and completed my clinical years in Springfield, MO. Now, I am excited to be in Columbia and add yet another Missouri city to my list of towns that I call home! 

I chose to pursue a career in family medicine because I enjoy having opportunities to form long-lasting relationships with patients and their families. I have a variety of interests in health care, and the wide scope of family medicine allows me to get more experience in each of those areas. 

I was attracted to the University of Missouri’s Family Medicine Residency because residents are able to learn and work in academic and community environments and they can choose to do their continuity clinic in a nearby rural town. Additionally, during my interview at Mizzou, I was impressed by everyone's welcoming attitude and commitment to educating excellent family medicine physicians. 

In my free time, I enjoy many outdoor activities including hiking, biking and kayaking. I also enjoy watching my sisters play volleyball, traveling and eating ice cream.

I grew up on my family’s farm in west/central Illinois. Agriculture is a major part of the lives of both sides of my family, which is why I enrolled in the Rural Medicine Program at the University of Illinois. I thoroughly enjoy working with rural folks and look forward to creating relationships with my patients at Fayette Medical Clinic. After residency, I plan to do a sports medicine fellowship. My goal is to live in a small town, where I can be the team physician at the local high school and/or a nearby small college. 

I chose family medicine because it’s the ultimate field of medicine. As a family physician, I can see people of all ages. And by living in a small town, I can take care of the entire community, which is vital for rural communities where resources can be scarce. I chose to train at MU’s Family Medicine Residency because of its excellent curriculum and friendly, accommodating staff. The faculty at MU Family Medicine were welcoming and the program is highly regarded. 

In my spare time, I enjoy watching movies with my wife and bonding with my young son, born just four months ago. When my schedule permits, I will be across the river chasing cows, fixing fence and doing whatever else needs done on my family’s farm.

I love that in family medicine, I’m able to care for people, regardless of their age, gender or diagnosis, while I get to know them. My goal as a family physician is as much about building relationships with people as it is about helping them achieve and maintain good health. I may not be able to solve every problem, but the broad range of knowledge I gain as a family physician will enable me to help everyone to some degree, regardless of his/her situation.

After living my last two years of medical school in Phoenix, AZ, I never imagined I’d return to the Midwest for residency. However, I was surprised and excited about MU Family Medicine throughout my interview here. Immediately I felt at home and was sure that Mizzou was a perfect fit for me. The people here are caring and attentive, and the environment -- for learning and for patient care -- is second to none. When I finished my interview at Mizzou, I decided it was the program to beat. I checked out other programs, but no other residency impressed me as much as MU Family Medicine.

Amy and I got married in 2015 and recently welcomed our first child, Adaline, into the world. Most of our leisure time is spent outdoors. We love going to the mountains, hiking, camping and fishing. We've also learned how to restore wood furniture. Last but not least, we like watching the NBA, The Office and Grand Designs.

My decision to pursue family medicine was influenced by my family who helped me understand and appreciate the value of long-term relationships, effective communication and the joy of working with all ages. I chose to do residency at the University of Missouri because it is a well-recognized program that’s located in my hometown. I grew up in Columbia and have always appreciated the Tiger community. As a medical student at Mizzou, I discovered that there are many wonderful physician mentors in the Family Medicine department, and now as a resident, I feel fortunate to be able to keep working with and learning from these faculty members.

My family has lived in Columbia for more than 20 years, and many of us are currently working or learning in some area of the University’s health system. My wife of three years is a practicing hematology/oncology nurse and is pursuing her DNP at the University of Missouri. My brother is in Mizzou’s physical therapy program; my sister-in-law is a NICU nurse at Women's and Children's Hospital, and my sister is filling out her application for nursing school at Mizzou. In my spare time, I enjoy running, reading, hiking, traveling, board games and spending time with my wife and friends.

I started medical school assuming I was going to do OB/GYN because I was passionate about women's health and maternal care. However, God tugged my heart strings during my family medicine clerkship. I realized then that I could have the best of all worlds, ob, gyn, peds, geri, men's health, as a family physician. The family physicians I met were amazing and had meaningful relationships with their patients, the kind of relationships I aspire to have with my future patients. 

When I first met Mizzou’s faculty and residents at the Annual Medical Education Conference, I knew there was something special about the program. They were welcoming, hospitable, thoughtful and down to earth. I also participated in MU’s Visiting Student Diversity Program, an experience that allowed me to see how well Family Medicine faculty and residents connected. It was obvious to me that the program supported residents and promoted resident wellness. They have each other's back at Mizzou; I'm happy to be part of the MU family! 

Spending time with family and friends gives me life, so moving away from my parents, brothers, niece and nephew in Chicago was hard for me. However, I recently got married and am overjoyed to have my husband and our Wheaten Terrier in Columbia with me. When not working, depending on the day, I’ll be either indoors watching TV/movies, playing board/card games, or enjoying a glass of wine OR outdoors exploring new restaurants, playing volleyball, or walking my dog. I also like to travel.

I chose family medicine because of the many opportunities I will have to serve patients. Family physicians care for patients of all ages who have a full range of health problems. I want to serve a small town, hopefully in Missouri, where the care I provide will make a real difference to the community and the people who live there. I am excited about my plan to partner with others and provide holistic care in the future. 

I chose the MU Family Medicine Residency for several reasons. The physicians here care for a diverse patient population that includes people who live in Columbia, as well as those from small mid-Missouri towns. Residents can choose to practice in Columbia or at one of the department's rural clinics. Family Medicine Residents learn about all the specialties and services provided by University Hospital, a level 1 trauma center that treats patients from across the state.

I hunt and fish, and I have an outstanding golf game. I love to be on the water during the summer and love to see my friends no matter what time of the year it is. My family is my rock; they support me regardless of where I am or what I am doing. I plan to marry my best friend and can’t wait for the adventures she and I will be sharing.

I’m originally from a very small town in rural northern Missouri but moved to Columbia to attend Mizzou eight years ago. I chose to family medicine because of the long-term relationships I will be able to develop with my patients. I love that I’ll have opportunities to care for everyone in a family, from grandparents to newborns. After residency, I hope to return to my home in rural north Missouri to practice. It’s a community that needs a family physician, and I look forward to serving the people who live there.

I attended Mizzou for undergrad and medical school. And when I learned that Mizzou has a very strong family medicine program, I decided not to leave Columbia. I love it here. I know that MU Family Medicine will prepare me well for my future practice in rural medicine.

In my spare time I love to read, hang out with family and friends, and play with my corgi Bentley.

I chose family medicine for two main reasons. First, I believe that a core problem with our current healthcare system is the limited access to primary care. Increasing the number of family physicians would increase the number of patients with access to quality primary care. Second, family medicine allows me to see patients of all ages who have a wide variety of health care needs. Every day is different, filled with learning and fun for me. 

I knew that I wanted to train at Mizzou Family Medicine early on in medical school. As a med student here, I was able to see firsthand the quality of the MU Family Medicine department. After working with and getting to know the residents and faculty, I knew this was where I wanted to train.

When not working, I enjoy being outdoors and exploring trails with my wife, Sara, and our dogs. In addition, we are trying to complete tasks on the to-do list that accompanied our fixer-upper. We also value time spent with our families.
