Dr. Dew graduated from Rockhurst University with an English degree. While she loved particularly the study of poetry, after diverse job opportunities, she found her true passion in the field of Medicine, specifically cardiology. Perhaps it was her much-loved father-in-law who received defibrillation on his living room floor during her first year of medical school and has not only survived, but become a model patient or perhaps it was the fascinating science, diverse practice and opportunities available to a cardiologist which ultimately proved to be most fulfilling and attractive to Dr. Dew during training.  

Prior to Medical school, Dr. Dew worked in a busy Infectious Disease and Pulmonary/Critical Care research laboratory. Her love for research was well-groomed there and she has been published in multiple medical journals and has presented many times in oral, poster and summary sessions at national meetings. Dr. Dew was awarded a grant from the Federal Drug Administration in 2004 during her fellowship to study specifically women’s stress testing.  

As a general cardiologist, Dr. Dew enjoys all aspects of cardiology. One of her favorite areas of focus includes women’s cardiac issues with a special emphasis in education. Speaking to community groups is a favorite activity and empowering patients with avenues to improve health and lifestyle is a much loved ongoing endeavor.  

Dr. Dew married her high school sweetheart and has two sons. Her personal interests are diverse and include family activities, gardening, fierce dominos, hiking, reading, travelling and kite flying.
