I cook, I farm, I teach
I split my time between two worlds. In one, I’m an assistant professor for a graduate medical school. In the other, I’m a small rancher.
My home, Two Mile Ranch, is halfway between Des Moines and Kansas City. Two Mile Ranch features a game bird habitat where we raise and release pheasants and grow pasture-raised ducks, turkeys, and chickens that are antibiotic free.
In academic work and research, I’ve focused on the topics of learning styles, evidence-based practice, and the role gender plays in health care leadership. Currently I’m working on a 5-hour documentary and lecture series, We Are What We Eat: The Nutrition, Policy, and Public Health of America’s Diet.
My writing here includes lessons learned from 80 acres and a 6 burner stove.
