Dr. Younglove’s Office Hours
As a daughter of a gynecologist and the granddaughter of a small town family physician, I knew that someday I too would enter the field of medicine. During my college years I took all of the courses required to gain entry into medical school, but also divided my time among a variety of liberal arts classes, eventually earning my degree in women’s studies. During medical school, I found that the area of women’s health held the greatest interest for me and chose a residency in obstetrics and gynecology.. After completing my residency training in 2005, I joined this practice and plan to stay in Overland Park for the remainder of my career.
I have three boys; Connor, Sawyer and Tanner. When I am not working, you can find me hanging out with my boys, either playing in the yard or watching them play hockey. I am very family-oriented. I have a lot of family members in the area and enjoy spending time with them. In the few moments I have to myself each week, I enjoy reading books, gardening and doing DIY projects around the house.
Although I enjoy all aspects of women’s healthy, the two areas that I am most passionate about are obstetrics and wellness. Having recently had three children myself, I feel a special bond with my pregnant patients and enjoy being a part of their growing families. I have a special interest in preconception counseling and educating women about the normal changes that occur with pregnancy. I am also board-certified in obesity medicine and am determined to educate people about wellness and nutrition. In 2015 I started a business called Kansas Weight Loss & Wellness – and for two half-days per week, I get to practice obesity medicine. I have a fairly informal practice and try to encourage my patients to take an active part in their healthcare.
