I began as a full-time Clinical Assistant Professor at Missouri State University in January 2013. Prior to that I was General Counsel for Mercy Health here in Springfield Missouri for over 20 years. I also served as in-house attorney for St. Luke's Regional Health Center in Sioux City, Iowa for 6 years. I taught as an adjunct faculty at either Missouri State or Drury University for 17 years. I am a big Iowa Hawkey fan and graduated from law school there in 1984.
