I have spent 43 years in healthcare leadership roles (behavioral health), the last 30 of which were senior leadership roles (executive director of two 86 bed facilities, and a corporate director position overseeing treatment strategies in multiple sites). I earned my doctorate in business administration fairly late in my career, and immediately began teaching healthcare management courses at the University of North Alabama.
Although I am an Alabama native, my wife and I moved to Lakeland in 2017 to be near family, and shortly thereafter, I joined the faculty at SEU, to assist in the development and teaching of the healthcare management concentration in SEU's Master of Business Administration program. This is my sixth year at SEU, and I love the students, my colleagues, and the emphasis on seeing career through the lens of your Christian faith.
My wife Sonja and I live nearby, with our three annoying dogs. When I'm not working, I can usually be found with a guitar in my hands.
