I grew up in Georgia, Virginia and Tennessee. I attended Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia and Tennessee Wesleyan College in Athens, Tennessee, getting my undergraduate degree in Chemistry. I then went to medical school at the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Memphis Tennessee. I did my Pediatric residency at T C Thompson Children's Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I was a Captain in the Air Force for 3 years as a Pediatric Clinic Physician at Barksdale Air Force Base before joining this clinic in 1997.
I was board certified in Pediatrics by the American Board of Pediatrics since 1994 and recertified in 2001.
I am married with 3 children, and we live in Bossier City. I love to travel, exercise and read.
