About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

My very first job was being an orderly at a local nursing home, when I was in my junior year of high school. I found it to be a very rewarding experience to meet the residents and help care for them. It seemed like I grew as a person by knowing them. I decided to go on to receive a baccalaureate degree in nursing so that I could take on more responsibilities. After nearly two decades in the high-tech area of intensive care, I chose to become a nurse practitioner, where I could expand my skills and have more autonomy. My doctoral degree was the culmination of my academic focus.

What I want my patients to know about me:

My 4.0 GPA in both my master's and doctoral program reflects a commitment to striving to do the best that I can. If you don't get better, I take it personally. If the fix for your particular situation is not readily apparent, I review literature, speak with colleagues and seek out specialists in order to get the best possible treatment for you. I view many of the patients that I serve as family members because I see them so frequently that we seem to share a common bond.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

My wife of 31 years and I like to travel the world, enjoying the natural scenery of a given area along with its food, people, and other unique features. We also like to go to baseball and football stadiums to see games. I have also made a lifelong commitment to golf, where I practice every day that I can. Hard to imagine now, but I used to be a +7 handicap. I am a father to two adopted cats, Winston and Charlie. I also enjoy reading about World War II Europe. My wife and I like the local shopping and dining experiences of Lancaster County.
