Direct Care Transition Expert

kirk-headshot.jpgA wearer of many hats at Atlas MD, my primary goal is to help doctors around the country transition their traditional practice to the Direct Care healthcare model. In essence, I aim to help make transitioning to DPC a downhill slide rather than an uphill battle.

I have extensive experience in hotel and restaurant management so I fully understand the value of hospitality — a concept doctors actually aren’t taught. I’m out to revolutionize that by bringing hospitality to healthcare, one clinic at a time. I work with clinics on every detail, every step of the way both during and after their transition to Direct Care.

After graduating from K-State and earning a degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management from the Department of Hospitality Management and Dietetics, I moved to Kansas City to indulge myself in the country club industry.

There I learned how to manage myself, more than 50 employees, and a multi-million dollar yearly budget all at once. Looking to expand my credentials, I later accepted a position as Director of Sales for a commercial LED lighting company before joining Atlas MD. My life experience has taught me that relationships can be a very powerful currency. I ultimately want to help doctors expose their inner servant hearts to their patients.
