I was born and raised in Owensboro and attended Owensboro High School. At Western Kentucky University, I completed my undergraduate education and received my medical training at University of Kentucky. I did my internship and residency in Pediatrics at the University of Kentucky in the University of Kentucky Medical Center. Currently I am board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and an active fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics (F.A.A.P)

My wife, Pam, and I have three children, Rachel, Benjamin and Adam. Together we spend much of our time enjoying our church, traveling, swimming and boating.
