FIRST TASTE OF SUCCESS:

When I was hired at The BridgeWay. I was given a lot of creative freedom in my programs to really shape them to the needs of our patients. To see patients benefit from that really validated that I was doing what was right.

WHAT IS A “GOOD MAN?”

To listen to your heart and gut. It can be hard to really do what you feel is right, but it’s extremely important to do that.

MOST ADMIRABLE QUALITY IN OTHER MEN:

The ability to go against the grain to do what’s right; to follow your gut feelings. I admire those who can make tough decisions to really be able to do the right thing.

PERSON YOU ADMIRE MOST:

100 percent, without question, my wife. To see her walk through life humble, energetic and vulnerable with such grace is an extremely rewarding experience and to be able to share that with her is even better.

FAVORITE PART OF YOUR JOB:

My patients. It’s amazing to see someone who really wants to recover really take in all the information and work through their issues to have a better life. It’s extremely rewarding to see someone that you’ve worked with having an amazing life because they applied themselves and worked hard for it.
