Meet the Doctor
I am a native of Minnesota and graduated from the University of Minnesota with a BS in biology. I pursued my doctoral education at Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine in North Chicago, IL. and graduated with a dual degree as a Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) with a Master of Science (MS) in Healthcare Administration and Management.
My three year residency with the Veteran's Affairs Maryland Healthcare System allowed me to hone my skills in general podiatry, wound care and surgery. During that time I practiced podiatry at VA and military hospitals in Maryland, Washington D.C. and West Virginia. It was an honor to serve both our Veterans and Active Duty service members - especially our wounded warriors. In my third year I was selected to serve as the Chief Resident.
Prior to pursuing my education, I spent many years playing music throughout the country as a solo artist and in a band. So podiatry is my second career but I still play my guitar and write songs in my free time. I also enjoy playing tennis, running, swimming, biking and hiking.
I volunteer my podiatric services to under-served communities on a monthly basis and I am willing to work with people who are in financial hardship.
My wife and I live in Alexandria, Virginia with two awesome cats (Oliver and Charlotte).
