I have worked in higher education since 2011, and I joined Trine’s Physician Assistant Program in 2022. I served as the associate director of the Physician Assistant Program at Albany Medical College and director of the St. Francis Physician Assistant Program.

I graduated with a degree in Physician Assistant Studies in 1995 and have been in clinical practice, predominately in emergency medicine, since graduation. I have precepted and mentored numerous physician assistant students during my career and am passionate about PA education.

I live with my wife Beth in Fort Wayne. I have six children. I have my private pilot certification and have a labradoodle named Bailey.
