I was born and raised in Cleveland, Tennessee and received a bachelor's degree in biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. I attended Lincoln Memorial University – DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed the pre-doctoral fellowship in anatomy and osteopathic principles and practices. My many interests in medicine led me to begin my career with ETSU Johnson City Family Medicine. The broad training of the specialty, along with the numerous opportunities the program provides, is giving me an excellent education and a great deal of experience.
After residency, I plan to complete a fellowship in neuromusculoskeletal medicine and open an integrative medicine practice.
I am married to Lillian, an extraordinary woman who gave us our fun-loving, whirlwind of energy named Liam. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading anything I can get my hands on, and playing in the great outdoors.
