About me

I am a Radiation Oncologist currently working in clinical medicine in the care of patients with cancer at Wichita Radiology Group. I am also the physician founder of Circle of Hope, an organization that aims to teach mindful awareness to patients with cancer, their caregivers and providers in order to harness the power of the mind-body connection. This is done through guided meditation, courses and spiritual coaching.

three topics of focus :


Mindfulness and Meditation in Oncology: helping patients with cancer, caregivers and healthcare professionals thrive through the practice of present moment awareness.


The Science of Meditation: educating on how meditation makes an impact in body physiology.


Bridging the Gap Between Science and Spirit: facilitating discussions about how science and spirit are not mutually exclusive.

What makes me stand out:

For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the interplay of science and spirituality. I hold a degree in Theology from the University of Notre Dame and I am a practicing Radiation Oncologist. I enjoy teaching mindfulness because it is accessible to anyone, regardless of religious beliefs, or lack thereof. Oncology professionals, patients and caregivers face a unique set of circumstances where they are confronted with the reality of suffering and mortality on a regular basis. Mindfulness allows people to connect with their deeper self, by using the power of the present moment, acceptance and nonjudgment to prompt a hopeful attitude and restored wellbeing.
