Upon finishing my residency with Vanderbilt, I stayed on with the Vanderbilt Internal Medicine residency program as a Chief Resident in Internal Medicine, which was a great year to develop my teaching skills in the medical field. My wife and I both have an interest in medical missions and were called to Peru upon finishing my Chief year, but due to a break of 1.5 years between finishing my Chief year and going to Peru in 2008, the Lord led me to Mercy. Little did we know at the time, but God had Mercy in mind for me to continue my career in the US once we returned from Peru in 2010. I have been at Mercy ever since. Why do you work at Mercy? I love the mission of Mercy – caring for all people, regardless of their ability to pay, in Christ’s name and Spirit – as well as the patients of Mercy. It has been a joy to work with Mercy for the majority of my post-graduate career.
I am married to my beautiful wife, Laura, and we have 6 children, each one a unique blessing. Although we are both originally from Ohio, we have loved our time in the middle TN area. We are thankful to be part of a wonderful church and enjoy the pastoral life as we tend to our sheep and cattle and many pets.
