Interests: I love to spend time with my wife and two awesome kids, often revolving around physical activity. I enjoy all sports, both as a spectator and participant, especially basketball, golf, football and CrossFit.

I travel around the country throughout the year attending leadership and professional conferences to help myself and Mettler Center become better partners in the health care world.
Personal quote: “While I’m driven to improve my skill set and base of knowledge as a therapist, I find no greater pleasure than interacting with people from all walks of life. It’s wonderful to be able to bring the two together to make a real difference in people’s lives.”
