I have lived in the Central Valley of California for most of my life. I enjoy the availability of outdoor activities at my back door. Running, hiking, traveling, and spending time with my wife and beautiful daughter are my favorite past times. I have a passion for education and nurse anesthesia, and I consider myself to be a lifelong learner. As the Program Director for the Nurse Anesthesia program, it is my passion to deliver a nurse anesthesia educational program that will train future nurse anesthetists to become dynamic clinicians and leaders.
