Lara Koral, MSN, FNP-BC
I am a Family Nurse Practitioner who specializes in headache medicine and work in the Headache Clinic at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, MO. I love being able to empower my patients with tools to help not only improve headaches but also help overall quality of life. I focus a lot on nutrition, lifestyle and integrative approaches to treat headaches. This can include supplement recommendations, neuromodulation, and acupuncture in addition to migraine medications and procedures.
Prior to Kansas City, I was in Memphis and worked at Lebonheur Pediatric neurology in Memphis where I also specialized in treating headaches but also saw general neurology concerns as well. Previous to that I worked in family medicine for over 10 years in both a private practice and a Community Health Center. I graduated from Yale School of nursing as an FNP in 2006.
I am originally from Japan and studied political science and Russian at Duke University. I worked in Washington DC after graduation as part of a non-profit organization that helped physicians and nurses from the United States partner with counterparts in Central Asia to further improve healthcare outcomes in their countries. Working with amazing nurses during this time led to my desire in pursuing my nursing degree and a career in health promotion.
I like to watch college basketball (Go Blue Devils!) as well as Sporting KC soccer. I love to travel internationally and spend time with my husband and two children.
