About

Bio

I am originally from Springfield, Illinois, I attended Southeast High School. Then I went to college at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, from there I attended medical school at Washington University in St. Louis. I did a four year residency in OB/GYN in St. Louis. I then came back to Springfield where I was in private practice from 1988 to 2003. I have been a full time faculty member of Southern Illinois University School of Medicine since 2003. I practice obstetrics and gynecology, see new patients and teach residents and medical students. My special interest is in bone health in the aging, postmenopausal patient. I also perform minimally invasive surgery.
