James joined the healthcare field, working over his college freshman summer for a hospital system in the Portland area and fell in love. He changed his major from Business to Healthcare Management at the start of his sophomore year and has never looked back. James joined the long-term care industry as an intern not knowing that a RUG was anything more than a floor covering and ever since, it’s been an incredible experience working with LTPAC partners across the industry.

Interests & Hobbies
James recently got married and purchased a house in 2019, which has been quite the project as we stayed inside mostly through 2020.
