Children’s Mercy Hospital – Gastroenterology
I am a pediatric gastroenterologist at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. I completed my undergraduate and medical degrees at the University of Missouri – Columbia, followed by pediatric residency and pediatric gastroenterology fellowship at Children’s Mercy. Within the division of gastroenterology, I act as the director of our celiac disease program. I also serve as the medical director for the Nutrition Services department at Children’s Mercy Hospital. I am very passionate about the role that food plays in our overall health and feel strongly that medically safe, nutritious food should be available for all. In my free time I enjoy cooking (gluten free!), gardening and yoga.
