About me

Kris graduated from The Ohio State University School of Medicine and Public Health in 1999 before completing her Emergency Medicine residency at Methodist/Indiana University in 2002.  She was inspired to do the Medical Toxicology fellowship (also at IU) after her resident rotation on the tox service.  After negotiating cat visitation rights in exchange for cooperation with medical therapy from a particularly difficult patient and learning a whole new vocabulary of swear words from her colorful patients that month, she knew this was the specialty for her. She completed her Medical Toxicology fellowship in June of 2004 and has been a member of the faculty since then. She oversees the outpatient toxicology clinic and helps staff the inpatient toxicology service, in addition to her work in emergency medicine.  She dearly loves her husband and three children- who all love living near Eagle Creek Park and enjoying the outdoors there.  She shares her home with numerous animals- some are invited and some are merely invading and hard to eradicate.
