Dr. McBratney’s personal side

Why did you choose to become a physician?

I grew up in Centralia, a very small town in Kansas without a physician, so I never considered being a doctor.  In college I majored in Biology and was hoping to become a physical therapist.  My sophomore year I was encouraged to switch to PreMed and have never looked back.

What do you like to do with your free time outside of the clinic?

I enjoy being active – swimming, scuba diving, gardening (yes, organic) and traveling.  I love to read and share books with the girls’ club.  My husband and I have been on multiple medical mission trips.  We’ve gone to the Philippines, Mexico and Guatemala.  We also mentor children through Leavenworth Youth Achievement Center.
