What inspires you to do your job?
I like meeting new people, getting to know them and their families, and helping them to live healthier, happier lives.
I feel that it is important for patients to understand the “why” of the treatment and medications that they are taking, or recommended to take, so I take extra time to make sure they are educated about why we are doing what we are doing.
I love being outdoors and am very down-to-earth. During the summer, you will find me at, or in, the water as much as possible. During the fall and winter, I enjoy deer hunting. During all times of the year I like to ride ATVs and enjoy God’s creation! I volunteer at my church (Bethel Community Church) and help others as I have been helped.
If I had not gone into medicine, I would have been in construction. I grew up pouring concrete with my father and his father during summers and weekends throughout High School and College. I grew to appreciate the skill and dedication it takes to create something with your mind and hands where there once was nothing.
