Hobbies, Personal Interests, etc.
I am married to a wonderful ER physician and we have 3 children. We recently put down roots in East Grand Rapids along with our two beagle mix rescue dogs. When the opportunity arises, I enjoy running 5k & 10k's as well as the once-a-year River Bank 25K.
Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, Indiana
Current Activities, Research, Subspecialty or Professional Interests
I have overseen the development of the Family Medicine Service (our inpatient service) and currently serve on various administrative committees. I also co-manage the practice management curriculum with Dr. Travis. I am one of the faculty advisers for the Recruitment Committee. From a research standpoint, I am focused on Inpatient Quality as well as the occasional interesting cases.
Why I chose to practice in Grand Rapids...
I joined GRFMR as faculty in 2006, shortly after moving to Michigan. I am unabashedly a transplanted Hoosier, graduating from Hanover College in 1998, Indiana University School of Medicine in 2002 and completing my Family Medicine Residency at Ball Memorial Hospital in 2005. I was drawn to FM as a specialty because I enjoyed interacting with all ages of patients, teaching them about their diseases and partnering with them in their health care. In a similar way, I have been drawn into residency education, striving to help residents grow in their knowledge and passion for family medicine.
