For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a physician. My passion started while playing sports. Dealing with my own injuries and seeing athletes around me get injured, go through treatment and recovery, sparked a deep interest that never went away.
I graduated from Holton High School in 2008. I attended Friends University in Wichita, KS where I graduated, in 2012, with a Bachelors in Health Science. In 2016, I earned my Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (RVUCOM) from Rocky Vista University College, in Denver, Colorado. I completed a 5-year orthopaedic surgery residency at Oklahoma State University College of Health Science in Tulsa, OK, followed by a 1-year Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine Fellowship at Beacon Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine in Cincinnati, OH.
I completed a fellowship in sports medicine where I oversaw care in two large high schools in Cincinnati, as well as Wilmington College, which is a Division III University. In addition to this as a fellow, I had the opportunity to be a part of the medical staff for the Cincinnati Reds baseball team.
I am passionate about working and serving the youth in my community and passing on the medical knowledge I’ve learned to the future generation. In addition, I enjoy supporting local small businesses.
As part of the JCMG team my goal is to provide outstanding orthopaedic care to patients of all ages to help them return to living the life they love. When I am not seeing patients at JCMG I enjoy spending quality time with my family, golfing, watching sports, and grilling.
My wife, Kayla, and I were married in October 2016. We are currently expecting our first child, due in January 2023. We also have one fur baby, Luna, a Great Dane/Weimaraner mix. She enjoys chin scratches, cuddles and being a lap dog. We are die hard Denver Broncos and Kansas Jayhawk fans. My family has had season tickets to the Broncos since the mid 1960’s.
