My Family

I have been married to my wife, Michele, for 26 years and we have two beautiful daughters, Bailey and Delaney. Bailey began school at the University of Florida this fall and Delaney is a Freshman at Bartram Trail High School. Brody (our dog) is also a big part of our family and is a definite camera hound.

The Navy Years
I joined the Navy at the age of 19, just out of high school. I was always interested in the medical field and the Navy was able to steer me toward that career path.

I spent the next 27 years working in Navy Medicine. I began my career as a Navy Corpsman and found myself in the middle of the Gulf War within the first year of enlistment. I deployed with the Marines to the Persian Gulf in December 1990 and would not return home until the spring. After I returned from the Gulf, I continued my career as a Search and Rescue Corpsman and was stationed in Texas and Japan in this capacity. I was selected for a commissioning program in 2000 and began Nursing School at Jacksonville State University in Alabama. After Nursing School, I was commissioned in the Navy Nurse Corps and spent the next 13 years as a Nurse for the Navy. This was a very rewarding time and I grew as a professional in duty stations like Great Lakes, Portsmouth, and Jacksonville. I am a veteran of two wars, Persian Gulf War and Operation Enduring Freedom. I retire from the Navy in June 2017.

My Interests
I enjoy spending time with my family, whether that be traveling or at home hanging out by the pool. I also love to swim, run & Scuba dive.
