Why I came to the Hoisington/Central Kansas area
• I grew up in western Kansas and was looking for a rural community to practice in. The organization was growing and was very progressive in improving patient care and service.

About my family
• I am married to my wife Leslee, who is a surgical nurse and stay-at-home mom. We have two children, Emmalee and Cameron.

• Harley-Davidson motorcycles, camping at Lake Wilson, shooting sports, collecting firearms, hunting, fishing, and scuba diving

Most rewarding part about being a provider
• The most rewarding part about being a healthcare provider is the long-term relationship I get to establish with my patients. I have the opportunity to get to know my patients, their families, and the things they like and enjoy. It’s not merely taking care of peoples health, but really getting to know people that makes what I do worth it.
