Residents Nichole Norgard, DO Nichole Norgard, DO Greetings! My name is Nichole Norgard, and I am originally from Mount Vernon, MO, home of Apple Butter Makin’ Days and Bobby Berk. I attended Drury University in Springfield, MO, for my undergraduate education, where I majored in chemistry and biology. During my time at Drury, I was accepted into the A.T. Scholars Program that granted pre-acceptance into medical school at A.T. Still University. During my medical school training, I learned how to learn, traveled to Nicaragua for a medical mission trip, deduced which organized clubs gave the most pizza, spent a year as a predoctoral fellow for medical education, and fell in love with family medicine. I chose Cox Family Residency because I knew their supportive atmosphere, engaged faculty, rigorous program, and bountiful coffee stations would aid me in becoming a strong family medicine practitioner that engages and empowers the local community. My most favorite things, in particular order, include: Ollie the labradoodle, reading, fried okra, hiking, kayaking, board games, napping, and knitting.
