"We are pleased to welcome Ashley to Lake Regional," said Michael Burcham, vice president of Lake Regional Physician Practices. "She will work closely with the clinics' providers and staff, as well as other Lake Regional clinics and hospital departments, to provide comprehensive, patient-focused health care."
Kober earned a Master of Business Administration from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar. She previously served as the practice manager for Bailey Cosmetic Surgery & Vein Centre in Osage Beach and as the director of marketing and sales for Woodland Scenics in Linn Creek.
Kober said she is looking forward to being a part of increasing the quality of care and the number of people receiving that quality care at Lake Regional.
"Lake Regional is such a vital component to the betterment of the lake community, and I'm thankful to be joining an organization with ability to have a positive impact in the lives of so many," she said.
Kober and her husband, Shawn, have two daughters. They also have two cocker spaniels and a cat. In her free time, Kober enjoys taking walks with her family, hiking at Ha Ha Tonka with their dogs, kayaking and just sitting on the porch with a good read.
