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 toxicology 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 2004 and has been a member of the IUSOM faculty since then. In addition to working in the IUH Methodist Emergency Department, she is the Division Chief for Medical Toxicology.  The Medical Toxicology consult service performs inpatient consults at the IUH Academic Health Center and the IUH Riley Hospital for Children, in addition to providing medical backup for the Indiana Poison Center.  Her interests include clinical operations, deprescribing, and mentoring.  Her scholarly work focuses on the care of poisoned patients. Kris dearly loves her husband and three children- who all relish living near Eagle Creek Park and enjoying the outdoors there. She shares her home with numerous animals- some of whom are invited and some are merely invading and hard to eradicate.
