About

Bio

I am a world saver. I got into health care because I was appalled at the condition of the health care system in this country (still am!). I have done all sorts of different health related jobs and made all sorts of compromises with survival in this health care system over the years, but my main goal is still to take care of people simply, respectfully, with some attention to how they want things to be for themselves and their families. I have twenty-six years of experience in primary care rural family medicine both here and in other parts of the world. I am the mother of six adult sons. I have five grandchildren, and two (so far) great grandchildren. The three oldest boys went to medical school with me and, I suspect, remember it well and not necessarily fondly (Thanks guys!). I worked in the emergency department fulltime during the years immmediately before and after the younger three boys joined the family, acquiring board certification in emergency medicine and serving on the Board of Certification In Emergency Medicine for three years while I was at it. I have a partner who is also my practice manager named Dena. We live on 160 acres of rural Missouri farmland which is being developed into a sustainable living center and farming operation as we can bring it about. We are working with our interest in traditional and medicinal plants. We intend for the whole place to be held in trust never to be developed except for the good of the planet and the people. I have a wide variety of other ineterests.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
