BIO After completing my fellowship at the Mayo Clinic, I joined the faculty of the University of Kentucky School of Medicine. I was promoted to associate professor with tenure, and spent my last two years as the chief of gastroenterology at the university affiliated VA Medical Center. After nine years at the University of Kentucky, I joined Salem Gastroenterology Consultants. Outside of medicine, I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughters. I also enjoy playing the cello, studying European history, and learning French. I'm actively involved in our church. I particularly enjoy Utah State University athletics. Go AGGIES!
