THREE FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:

  1. I have an amazing wife, Catherine, who I have been married to for longer than she would like to admit.
  2. I have six incredible kids.
  3. I enjoy working with the youth at my church.

 

WHY DO YOU LOVE YOUR JOB?

The easy answer is that I love kids. They are amazing! They are fun, exciting, inquisitive, and full of energy, but at the same time challenging and brutally honest. With parents, I have the incredible honor of them trusting me to help guide them in the care of those they value most. I get to walk beside them, help them with their parenting dilemmas, calm their worries, celebrate their successes, and pray with them when their kids are teenagers.

As a pediatrician, every day brings new experiences, new challenges and new opportunities for growth. I never have to grow up and can continue to play with kids each day. As a side benefit, I get to watch cartoons and can call it “homework” (but don’t tell my wife).
