Dr. Wallace is a Hospitalist and joins Dr. Kendall Clarkston, Dr. Jeffrey Dryden, Dr. Priscilla Frase, and Dr. Alex Makarian in providing care to inpatients at OMC.

Dr. Wallace earned her medical degree from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences in Kansas City, Mo. She holds a Masters of Business Administration in Healthcare Leadership from Rockhurst University in Kansas City, Mo. She completed her residency at Cox Family Medicine in Springfield, Missouri. She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Central Methodist University in Fayette, Missouri.

“We are very pleased to welcome Dr. Wallace to the OMC medical staff,” said OMC President and CEO Thomas Keller. “OMC has an exceptional hospitalist program for our inpatient care. Dr. Wallace will be a wonderful addition to that team.”

Dr Wallace and her husband, Zeb, have relocated to West Plains. Zeb is the West Plains High School Baseball Head Coach and the A+ Program Coordinator. They have one daughter, Olivia, who is 15 months old.

“Both of us grew up in small towns, and I grew up on a farm,” said Dr. Wallace. “We were looking for a small town to settle down in and raise our daughter. We really liked the school district and everyone has been very welcoming,” she said.
