About Me

My professional life has encompassed a variety of roles and geographical locations, but with a common theme–helping others grow, mature and succeed. I have served as a consultant, coach, chaplain, pastor, educator, manager, and now as the Associate Vice President for FaithHealth Operations at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

I have enjoyed every role and I particularly enjoy teaching, public speaking and creative problem solving. One of the creative challenges that have shaped my life is my mission to appropriately combine both the head (critical thinking and intellectual rigor) and the heart (emotional intelligence and compassion). I believe that when these two capacities are integrated appropriately, they produce the best leadership, decision-making, and quality of life.
