I started my professional career as an officer in the United States Air Force where I served for five years. While serving I learned the value of teamwork and leadership that has helped shape my philosophy of care as a Physician Assistant. I believe in building trusting relationships with the patient and their care partners. Developing an individualized patient centered treatment plan allows the patient to be proactive in their care and achieve positive outcomes. I believe in empowering patients to be involved in decision-making with the hopes that they will be more likely to achieve their goals. I strive to keep up to date with the latest evidenced based research to provide accurate, timely information and address any concerns or questions regarding their plan of care.
While not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two adventurous boys. My hobbies include golf, Crossfit, softball, cooking, and just about anything outdoors.
