I grew up in Springfield, Missouri but traveled west for college. After obtaining a degree in Exercise Science from Brigham Young University, I graduated from The University of Arizona College of Medicine in 2017. I joined Preferred Pediatrics upon completing my residency training at Children’s Mercy Hospital. 

I love being a pediatrician and am eager to partner with parents to provide outstanding care for their children. I greatly enjoy educating families and feel this allows me to develop trust and lasting relationships with them. I seek to mirror the happiness in children that drew me to pediatrics by making humor and enthusiasm a part of every visit. I always strive to be a well-rounded physician, capable to care for children of all ages. I also have particular interest in allergies, asthma, and sports medicine.

My beautiful wife is my biggest supporter and we are blessed with two incredible children, a son and a daughter. I welcome the opportunity to spend any free time with them, especially outdoors. Among other things, I enjoy cooking, fitness, and cheering for my favorite sports teams. I am an imperfect Christian but seek to live by faith and show gratitude in all things.
