I’ve lived mostly around Georgia but spent six years in Austin, TX and a couple years in the South Pacific where my parents were missionaries. I studied Cell Biology and Public Health at UGA, and I was blessed to stay in the Classic City for medical school. I met my wife, Ashley, at a Braves tailgate and we held strong as she left UGA for OT school at MCG Augusta. She moved back, we married, and settled on a little farm with her horses north of Athens.
We came to know the name Self Regional through relationships with alumni and a current resident. Once arriving in Greenwood, we fell in love with the people, the mission statement, and the atmosphere. I arrived on the interview trail looking for the best place to be molded into a well-rounded family physician that could serve the various needs of a low resource rural population and found that Self Regional could guide me to that potential. I am also very excited about the international service opportunities.
My wife and I enjoy farm life, fishing, hiking, sports, reading and country music. I love to hunt and spend as much time as possible in God’s beautiful creation. We are so overjoyed with what the Lord has provided us in the Greenwood community.
