MS Student, Applied Clinical Informatics

Fall 2023 - Spring 2025

I am joining you from Salina, Kansas. I grew up in a small town in Kansas called Herington. I attended the United States Military Academy for undergraduate studies where I completed a B.S. in Engineering Management. I then commissioned as an infantry officer in the army and served for six years gaining a variety of experiences: Ranger school, deployment to Afghanistan, company command, etc. Upon leaving active duty I joined the reserves and entered medical school at the University of Kansas School of Medicine – Salina. After finishing there, I went on to complete anatomic and clinical pathology residency at the University of Florida; where I also earned my M.B.A. in the weekend professional program. Currently, I am a staff pathologist at a private laboratory and I teach some medical student classes on the side.

It is my hope that the training provided by Vanderbilt’s program will allow me to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs in both my private laboratory and the multitude of local hospitals that I am affiliated with. After proof of concept, I would like to work with the local medical school campus (University of Kansas School of Medicine – Salina) to incorporate public health, preventive medicine, and informatics training and eventually spearhead the creation of a preventive medicine residency program in conjunction with the existing family medicine program in town (which is focused on providing health care to rural communities).
