Serving our communities is a way for me to stay in touch and make a positive difference. Growing up in a low-income household, my parents really had to know where to cut corners. Oftentimes, we had to go without and getting sick was not an option. I remember as a child that going to the doctor always seemed to put a financial strain on my family, even with well-check visits.
Being a part of Mountain Park Health Center, and working to make healthcare attainable to all hits home for me. I have worked in healthcare for more than 30 years, 13 of those working in hospitals and the last 18 in hospice and palliative care.
I am a father of two teenage daughters and am married to a spectacular woman. We have a rescue dog and two rescue cats. When I’m not working, I enjoy watching my daughters compete in soccer and cheerleading. I also love football, bodybuilding, cooking, gardening, mountain biking and of course hiking.
