Professional Areas of Interest – I practice across the full range of family medicine, but have special interest in diabetes, hypertension, cholesterol disorders, sports medicine, weight management and dermatology.

Personal Information – I was born in the middle elevator of the old St. Joseph Hospital on Linwood in Kansas City. My father was a career USAF senior master sergeant, so we moved frequently. I grew up mainly on the East coast.

I have five brothers and sisters, and currently have three foster children: Alex, Tony and Elizabeth. They keep us very busy. I also sing with the KC Symphony Chorus and have since 1996, and am a member of a new church in the northland, New Song. I enjoy weightlifting, singing, acting and wine tasting.
