Candidate Statement

I am honored to have been nominated for this position and would like to thank Drs. David Farcy and Mark Reiter for their support and confidence in considering me for the AAEM board. I have been a long-standing member of AAEM, and have previously served on the Board of AAEM, both at the National and State level. I currently serve as the Treasurer of the PAC. I am one of the founding members of the Tennessee Chapter of AAEM and served as the first TN AAEM president. As such I helped lead our Chapter to defeat the efforts to bring back restrictive covenants to the State of TN for emergency physicians. I was instrumental in spearheading the plan to establish a new emergency medicine residency program at Saint Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro, TN, which has the largest emergency department in Middle Tennessee and sees approximately 95,000 ED visits a year. I am serving as the Associate Program Director here and I am dedicated to GME and the training of our future generations of emergency physicians.

In my spare time I have a family with four kids, operate a 100 cow beef cattle herd and farm, and enjoy fine wine, traveling, and fishing.

I take the opportunity to serve AAEM as a board member very seriously, and if elected, I will strive to make emergency medicine better for the working emergency physician and our patients.
