Tell us about yourself. Where are you from?
I’m a Dallas native and I attended the University of Texas at Dallas, where I studied business and political science. After graduation, I worked for Enterprise for seven years, progressed through their management training program and moved from retail to their commercial segment doing outside sales for them the last four years. After moving to Grapevine with my now wife, I wanted to find a company where I could grow, while staying local, and Staff Care had every piece of criteria I was looking for.
What do you like to do for fun outside of work? Do you have any hobbies?
I enjoy going to concerts (indie or college rock), doing video work and riding my scooter. My wife and I also serve on the board for non-profit that focuses on green initiatives, sustainability programs and conserving natural spaces.
What attracted you to working in the healthcare industry?
The impact we make to communities every day. When we are successful at our job, we quantify what impacts happen to the community as far as patients seen, and needs being fulfilled.
What do you enjoy most about working at Staff Care?
There’s some predictability as to what’s needed task wise, but there’s also something new every day to tackle. We get to challenge ourselves to truly understand the marketplace. I also really enjoy working with each of the members of my Surgery team.
If you could have any job in the world, other than working at Staff Care, what would it be?
Executive chef. I really enjoy cooking, and use that time to decompress.
What's your single favorite Staff Care memory?
During Halloween my first year at Staff Care, I convinced each member of my team to dress up like a swarm of bees. There was a worker bee, killer bee, queen bee, spelling bee, to bee or not to bee, and zomBEE. It was a lot of fun dressing up together and we all had a good time with it.
What's the one item you can't live without?
My music collection. I love music and listening to different songs that take me back to different memories of my life.
