I am on the medical staff for Virginia Tech Athletics, Salem Minor League Affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, Pulaski Minor League Affiliate of the Seattle Mariners, Roanoke College Athletics and Salem High School Athletics. I am happily married, have 4 wonderful children and enjoy competitive swimming, exercise, skiing and watching the Dallas Cowboys!
