What got me interested in pursuing a career in the health care field: I became interested to health care after spending time as a physical therapy assistant in outpatient PT at Reston Hospital in Virginia in 1994-96. I was exposed to health care in the hospital setting, it inspired my interests in medicine. I desired a career helping others and furthering my education and becoming a Physician Assistant was a natural transition.
Most of my free time is spent with family and friends. I live on acreage near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho and love being outside tending to my property and wood working in the shop. My wife and daughter spend much of our Winter skiing and Summer on the Cd’A Lake and St. Joe River.
