Upon completion of my residency at the the University of Kentucky, Lexington, I practiced in a small town, Wilmore, KY, for three years before moving to Joplin, MO in 1997.  I began working part time at the Joplin city Health Department as well as in a family practice in Webb City, MO.

After six years of working for other people, I was very excited to open my own practice in 1999.  Over the last 16 years, I have had the opportunity to work with the American Academy of Family Physicians on several research projects.  

I have two children, Sam and Ben.  My husband, David Croy, MD is a medical Oncologist and Hematologist in Joplin.
