Life before residency:
I grew up in rural Illinois, and I am the first in my
family to attend college. I went to Monmouth College for
my undergraduate studies and A.T. Still University in
Kirksville, Missouri for medical school.
When I graduated from college my entire family,
(parents, siblings, in-laws, grandparents, aunts,
uncles) I mean everyone, surprised me by attending my
graduation. My family is incredibly supportive, and they
never cease to amaze me.
Why I chose RMC:
RMC goes above and beyond to make everyone they interact
with feel welcome and valued. Family is very important
to me, and Kansas City is far from home, but RMC has
truly created its own family atmosphere. I am also
impressed with the genuine patient care and top-notch
education here at RMC.
Hobbies & Interests:
My husband and I enjoy hiking, biking, playing disc
golf, and exploring new places. We also enjoy cooking
dinner for friends and hosting board game nights.
Other interesting things about me:
My best friend in high school became my husband in
medical school. He has really pushed me out of my “rural
bubble”, and we have had some amazing adventures
