|I was born and raised in the Appalachians of Virginia and have always felt that the mountains
were my home. I traveled to the other side of Virginia to go to the College of William and
Mary, and it was there that I met my wife Amy. I received my medical education at Eastern
Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, VA where I found another passion --primary care.
With my love of the Appalachian Mountains and my desire to be a rural-based primary care
physician, I quickly fell in love with Tennessee and the program at ETSU. My wife and I love
Bristol. We enjoy living somewhere that we can bike, camp, and hike again. I'm very glad
to have been given the opportunity to work with the other physicians and residents at ETSU
with the goal of improving our patients' health and lives.
