    About me

    I was born and raised in small-town central Illinois where you never have to go too far to find a corn field in Summer. After completing my education journey through undergraduate at Millikin University in Decatur, IL, and medical school at Kansas City University, I did both my family medicine residency and sports medicine fellowship at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Quincy, IL.

    I'm now at SIU in Quincy as a faculty member for family medicine residents and sports medicine fellows. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, fishing and road trips.

    • Carpal tunnel disease
    • Bone Fractures
    • Concussion
    • Herniated disc
    • Heel pain
    • Joint pain
