When I came to the University of Missouri in Columbia, it was for a singular mission: to start a residency program. My time spent training and practicing as an EM physician in St. Louis helped prepare me for this moment. As that dream has materialized, I have noticed that teaching residents at the bedside and in the classroom is not enough for me. I have come to the point in my young career that advocating for patients and my specialty has become integral to who I am as an EM physician. I am honored to formalize that passion in being a board member of MOCEP. I cannot think of a more fulfilling role than representing my colleagues by helping to make Missouri a safe, more practical place to be an Emergency Physician while simultaneously fighting for the best possible resources for the best possible care for our patients.

I would like to help mold the future of emergency medicine through advocacy for our profession through MOCEP. Just as we impact the daily lives of our patients in the emergency department, we can also impact their lives by advocating for legislation that can directly impact their care. I want to serve as a liaison between my fellow Emergency Medicine physicians and the state legislature to ensure that politicians have access to our expertise and extensive training when making decisions. My recent participation in the MOCEP Advocacy Day highlighted that legislators are willing to listen to us and take our voice into account in their decision-making.

I have always known that children are special and I was meant to work with them somehow somewhere. My journey led me to medicine and subsequently a pediatric residency at Children’s Memorial Hospital. This was followed up by a fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine also at Children’s. Following my fellowship I moved to San Diego to start my clinical career at San Diego Children’s Hospital. As our family grew, we moved back to the Midwest to raise our children near family in the Western Chicago suburbs. There, along with two others, we started the first community pediatric ED in the Chicago suburbs. After 12 years we had accomplished and celebrated many successes. In 2012, the opportunity to start a pediatric ED in Columbia surfaced and brought us to Missouri. I am now in my 20th year of serving children and their families. If I had a career “do-over” would I do this again….without a doubt! “Let the little children come to me” Mark 10:14.
