Tell us a little about yourself and your life:
I am married and have three small children, ages five month, four and six. My youngest was born with hydrocephalus and has needed very attentive care since he was born. My wife had to leave her job as a cardiovascular sonographer of nine years to care for my youngest. I am the lead diagnostic medical sonographer at Lee Memorial Hospital, and I am the only practicing musculoskeletal sonographer in the SWFL area.
What are your hobbies/extracurricular activities?
If I have spare time, I enjoy power lifting, martial arts and boxing, in addition to anything that involves spending time with my wife.
What has been your favorite class at Hodges University?
They have all been beneficial in one way or another, especially when I can relate to the issues presented on a daily basis with my current career.
