Doctorate of Nursing Practice, UMKC
I enjoy playing golf with family and friends in my free time. I enjoy watching all sports and games shows on tv. I root for the Nebraska Huskers, Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I enjoy going out with family and friends for dinner and drinks. My parents moved here from Nebraska to be closer to my sister and I. My brother remains in Nebraska and travels to visit quite often. My sister and her husband have three kids together so I enjoy spending time with my niece and nephews. My rescue dog is a Pitbull mix who I named Charlie and we spend evenings and weekends together!
WHY I AM HERE
I began caring for those in need when I was a teenager as a Certified Nursing Assistant. After several years of collegeI began my Registered Nursing (RN) career in the Kansas City area. After nine years serving patients in the hospital setting as a RN, I became a Family Nurse Practitioner in order to provide even more advanced care to patients. I became a provider because I care about people and want to help those in need. I strive to provide compassionate, comprehensive care for my patients using a team-based approach with shared-decision making.
SPECIALTY / PASSION
I have a passion in caring for patients of all ages for acute and chronic conditions. I also offer services in Chronic Hepatitis C treatment and Opioid Use Disorder with Medication Assisted treatment.
