Originally from Indiana, I am a 30-year veteran of the U.S. Navy, having served all over the world. The first half of my military career was as a Navy Saturation Diver and the second half as a Registered Nurse Corps Officer. I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Seattle University and my Master of Science in Nursing, Family Nurse Practitioner from Purdue University Global. I am board-certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners (AANP).
As a family nurse practitioner, I am committed to treating patients of all ages the same way I would expect my family members to be treated. My practice is based on respect, kindness and compassion. I provide safe, high-quality care founded on accurate, up-to-date, evidence-based research. I believe in treating the person as a whole and establishing therapeutic relationships that empower my patients to be partners in their own care.
In my free time, I enjoy the wonderful Pacific Northwest outdoors through hiking, running, cycling, boating, golfing and spending time with my incredible wife and two grown sons.
