Joshana is a seasoned lawyer with experience in health care litigation, health care administration, and bioethics.  After almost a decade serving as the Associate Disciplinary Counsel for the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts, where she helped manage the investigation and resolution of alleged violations of the Healing Arts Act, Joshana returned to private practice in November 2017 to focus on civil litigation.

“I am proud to work alongside attorneys who pay attention to the smallest detail without ever losing sight of the big picture.”

From 2005 to 2012, Joshana served pro bono as a court-appointed special advocate for abused and neglected children in Topeka, Kansas.


  • While serving as the Associate Disciplinary Counsel for the Kansas State Board of Healing Art, reviewed complaints, malpractice petitions, medical malpractice payment reports, and renewal applications to identify potential violations of the Healing Arts Act to determine whether an investigation should be opened.
  • Took and defended depositions in connection with investigations of alleged violations of the Healing Arts Act.
  • Successfully argued several cases before Kansas District Courts, Kansas Court of Appeals, and Kansas Supreme Court.
