Chief Residents


Miki Andrus-Bearden, DO


Mallory Dameron, DO

“I am excited to serve as one of the chief residents this year along with Chris and Miki. I hope to be an advocate for the residents and look forward to working with our faculty and administration. As chief resident, my goal is to continue to promote wellness and build a strong sense of community within the program. I am excited for the new year and can’t wait to meet the Class of 2026!  I chose UMKC Family Medicine because we have the opportunity to practice full spectrum Family Medicine in an unopposed training with supportive staff that truly feel like family. I grew up in Kansas City, MO and attended A.T. Still University in Kirksville, MO for medical school. I have loved being in Kansas City for my residency training as it allows me to be close to my family and to give back to the community that raised me. I live in Lee’s Summit with my 2 year old fluffy cat, Darwin, and hope to practice in the area in the future!”

I’m excited and humbled to be selected as a chief resident this year with Miki and Mallory, and think that we’ll make a great team!

A little about me: I’m originally from Leawood, KS, and make the “long” drive in to work across the state line from Lenexa, KS, where I live with my wife and two daughters. I went to school at Des Moines University in Iowa, and am a Midwestern kid through and through. Some of my favorite residency memories have been with the great residents and faculty I’m lucky to work with- who also happen to be wonderful people. Getting to know people here has been easy and made my residency experience a good one. I think we get both substantial depth and breadth in our training, and I feel prepared to refine my skills here another year before going out into whatever comes next. Looking forward to a great year!
