Biographical Info

Heidi was born in St. Louis and grew up in Peoria. She received her BS in speech-language pathology and an MA in rehabilitation counseling from Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois. She also completed a yearlong Behavioral Science/Family Systems Educator Fellowship through the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine in 2016.

Heidi has been a part of UICOMP Family Medicine Residency program since 2012. Heidi’s teaching emphasis is in areas of behavioral medicine and resident/physician wellness.

Heidi and her husband, Austin, have two sons, Owen and Luke. She enjoys spending time with family, and going to local community events with her family, such as Peoria Chiefs baseball games and the local farmers market. She also enjoys being outside working in her yard, reading and cake decorating.

The warmth and support that I feel at our residency is an incredible and everlasting sensation that is something you experience the moment you walk through our doors. There is a passion here at our residency that is seen through the teaching and education provided, but also through a sincere positive regard for each resident, staff, and faculty member.
