I was thrilled to join Kansas City Bone and Joint in August 2014. I am a Certified Physician Assistant working with Dr. Suzanne Elton. I graduated from University of Kansas with a Bachelors in Human Biology. I went on to complete my Master’s in Medical Science from A.T. Still University. During the last 6 years I have worked in Primary Care and Internal Medicine.
Orthopedics has developed as a prime interest of mine after seeing patients suffer with joint ailments, develop depression because they can no longer golf, ski, walk their dogs, or chase their children. A combination of joint injections, physical therapy and or surgery changes their lives. As fitness is a mainstay in my life, I value the importance of normal mobility to facilitate a high quality of life.
When I am not in the clinic, I like to keep active enjoying the great outdoors with family and friends.
