Personal Interests: Enjoy the outdoors, travel and visiting historic landmarks and museums.
Biography: I was raised in a small, rural community where the local economy was dairy farming, logging, commercial fishing and tourism. The nearest hospital was a 30 minute drive and a two hour drive to the cities to see a specialist. This fostered my passion for a career in rural and remote healthcare.
At 14 years of age, I became a state certified first responder and began volunteering on my hometown ambulance. I have more than seven years experience in pre-hospital emergency medicine (i.e., ambulance, fire and rescue) and I have been a nurse for 18 years. I also have three years experience working for a physician of internal medicine, eight years as a surgical nurse, and seven years experience in international medical work in remote Southeast Asia.
My wife and I just celebrated 23 years of marriage. We have four children, of which our youngest is a year away from graduating high school and our first grandchild is due October 2016!
