Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:
I became interested in a medical career at a young age. I started volunteering at WellSpan York Hospital when I was in high school. My biology teacher sparked my interest, and I pursued a biology degree in undergraduate studies with intent to go to medical school. However, by my senior year I was thinking a mid-level path was better for my long term goals. I took some time off after school and returned to York. I did additional training and became an EMT in the city of York. I learned more about the physician assistant profession and applied eventually attending Emory in Atlanta.
What I want my patients to know about me:
My career has spanned a few different areas within medicine, beginning in interventional radiology in Greenville, NC. An opportunity presented to come back home to York in 2006 working for cardiology, which I accepted and worked in until 2012. I moved to pre-admission testing for a local orthopedic group until 2018, when I came back to cardiology. I love being a patient educator and take great pleasure in helping the heart make sense to my patients!
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I am married, and my wife Michelle and I have been friends since seventh grade. She is a registered nurse. We are both born and raised in the York area. We have two children. We enjoy fishing and sampling local restaurants.
