I grew up in Topeka, KS. I graduated from Washburn University with a BA in Biology and Chemistry before I headed out East for medical school. I attended The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine Achieving first my Master's Certificate in Biomedical Sciences before entering their osteopathic medical program. I graduated in the top 10% in my medical school class in 2006.
I continued my education with a family medicine/OMT rural residency in Sayre, PA with Guthrie Health Systems. I graduated from this program in 2009 and was named Resident of the Year that year as well. I worked for the first 5 years out of residency in Blue Earth, MN with United Health District. I moved back to Kansas for family. I worked for St. Francis Health Systems for 2 years, which allowed me to realize my dream of opening up my own direct primary care clinic, Accomplished Health and Wellness LLC.
