My Story

I have been a practicing physician in Springfield, Illinois, for over 30 years.  In addition, I am certified as a coach for personal and professional development with an emphasis on overall well-being (PCI, IFC, DISC) and certified as a Nature and Forest Therapy guide (ANFT).

While not working I volunteer as a naturalist, rescue dogs, and tend my 30 acres of prairie, forest, and pond. I am endlessly grateful for time spent with family, friends, patients, clients, and staff.
