Why did you become a doctor / dentist / behavioral health specialist ?

After serving as an Air Force Medic for 20 years, I wanted to take my education to the next level. I wanted to manage patient care myself. I knew I could do an amazing job and change patients’ lives for the better.

What do you enjoy or find most fulfilling about caring for patients?   

When I find a problem that with intervention is life saving.
When I walk along side the patient in their journey assisting them in a healthier lifestyle, and watching their life improve.

What attracted you to a community health center for your practice?

I have a passion for serving the underserved less advantaged community. I love the organizational structure that reminded me of my military days. There are so many patient advantages and programs available at a health care center. Furthermore, the focus is not on profit but rather quality.

If you could be anything else, what would you want to be?

Health and wellness coach/Nutritionist/trainer.

Do you have children? If so, what are their ages?

I have two boys. 28 and 30 years of age.
