Patient Care Philosophy

A transplant from Washington state, Forestry and Emergency Medicine, I am now a fully dedicated Virginian and Occupational Medicine physician. I look forward to many years with BWXT/PTC providing superlative, personalized care to each soul I have the pleasure to care for. Outside of medicine, I treasure a life of Faith, my large family, history and personal fitness. Light’em up Flames 🔥 !!! Gobble’em Hokies !!!
