What are your greatest professional interests?
I am a geek for all things related to GME administration and regulation, including as it relates to health care advocacy. Clinically, I have particular interests in care of infants and children, hospital medicine, point of care ultrasound and osteopathic medicine.
What are your personal hobbies and interests?
I am a certified yoga instructor. I also enjoy backpacking and hiking. In 2021, I am section hiking the 237 miles of the Katy Trail here in Missouri.
If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing about graduate medical education, what would it be?
I would increase the number of CMS-funded GME spots and redistribute them to emphasize primary care specialties.
