Vadsana Smith, APRN

Vadsana was born in Laos and immigrated with her family to the United States in 1980. She has come to call Kansas City her home and over the years has grown to appreciate its friendly mid-western culture, savory BBQ and lively jazz music. Of course, she was totally thrilled to see her KC Royals win not only the 1985 World Series, but also the 2015 World Series!

She earned her Bachelor of Nursing at Graceland University. Her nursing career started at Saint Joseph Medical Center where she worked as a registered nurse in the cardiopulmonary unit and other critical care floors. She later attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City and received her Masters in Nursing in Family Practice in 2005. She is Board Certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

She is compassionate about taking care of the mind and the body. In providing her patients with the best "tools" to optimize their health and in empowering them with knowledge, she feels that she is making a positive impact in her patients' overall well-being. This is why she became a nurse practitioner.
As a nurse practitioner, she has worked in many settings, including primary care, physciatry medicine and rehabilitation and clinical research. She is excited to be a part of a gastroenterology team, who she feels is providing its community with the highest level of health care. She also continues involvement in clinical research studies as she finds helping to advance medicine in this way to be very rewarding.

Outside of work, she enjoys family time with her husband, their 3 girls and their Boston terrier, Bruce. In addition to chauffeuring her girls to their many activities, she enjoys reading for leisure, traveling and experiencing new foods and new cultures, perusing antique and home decor shops with friends and running for the pure pleasure of it. She has completed 1 full marathon and several half marathons.
