I’m originally from St. Peters, MO and moved to Kirksville to pursue health sciences at Truman State University.  Stayed in Kirksville to attend A.T. Still University- Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine and graduated in 2013. I attended a 4 year Emergency Medicine Residency in Erie, PA at St. Vincent Hospital where I was chief resident.  I’ve worked at Blessing Hospital in Quincy, IL since 2017 and now full time at NRMC since 2021 where I’m the Emergency Department director.  I’m very excited to become the EMS director for Adair County!

Personal life- married to Brendan Grgurich and we have two young kids, Aubree and Noah and golden retreiver Maya. We plan on residing in Novinger, MO once our house is built. In my free time, I enjoy traveling – especially to the beach, cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals, and eating Italian food!
