I grew up in Olathe, Kansas, playing football, basketball, and throwing discus and shot put on the track team for the Olathe North Eagles. I went on to play football at Baker University, where I continued my love of sports and decided to pursue a sports medicine career. After medical school and a residency at the University of Kansas Medical Center, I completed a sports medicine fellowship at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
As a primary care physician at the Sports Medicine & Performance Center, I am one of the primary care points of contact for high schools in the Shawnee Mission and Blue Valley school districts. In that role, I consult with trainers, provide recommendations, see athletes in clinic and offer guidance if a patient requires surgery. I work with the youth sports program and am the main contact for Blue Valley West, Blue Valley Northwest, Blue Valley Southwest and Lansing high schools. I also serve as a primary care physician for the Kansas City Chiefs.
