  • Is this information wrong?


  • I am a board-certified pediatrician and Medical Director of Children's Mercy Hospital's Operation Breakthrough Clinic, an NCQA-certified Patient-Centered Medical Home co-located within Operation Breakthrough, a large Head Start/Early Head Start agency. Our cross-sector clinic offers primary care and developmental/behavioral care to children within the school and surrounding community. I also serve as a medical advisor to Mid-America Head Start and attend their Health Services Advisory Committee. I actively participate in Children's Mercy Hospital/Operation Breakthrough's Partnership for Resilient Families.

    I'm a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and serve the Kansas Chapter of the AAP as a co-facilitator for Kansas CATCH grants, and am about to start the Research Scholars Program with the Academic Pediatric Association. Our clinic has participated in state-wide QI initiatives including AsthmaReady Communities. I love communicating health information to at-risk, high-need populations in an understandable, enjoyable way. I'm also an avid choral singer and sing soprano with Te Deum Chamber Choir, a renowned sacred choir in the KC/Metro area.
