At a young age I knew I wanted to either be a veterinarian or a pro golfer. I decided to go the medical route and volunteered at animal hospitals all through high school. In 1985, I received my undergraduate degree from Auburn University. I received my doctorate from the University of Florida in 1989. My wife, Karen, and I moved to Atlanta and I joined a private practice where I focused on surgery and diagnostics for three years.
We moved to Woodstock and decided this was a nice place to raise a family. We opened our practice in 1992 and have been caring for the pets in this area ever since. Our children are Courtney, Ty and Jessie. We have one dog named Black Jack. He is a loving, but energetic dog that sometimes drives us crazy. Our cat, "Boo", makes it clear that she is the boss.
Since opening the clinic, four of our family pets have died of old age. Our golden retriever, Alex, and Japanese Chin, Mo, were the best pets anyone could ask for. Our cats, Putter and Caddy, are also greatly missed. I know what it is like to lose a pet, especially when they become such important parts of the family. The sadness is only softened by the memories of companionship and unconditional love that a pet provides
In my spare time, I am usually with my family at a sporting event. I also find time to golf. I often have at least one high school student on staff in association with an Apprenticeship Program. The community support for my animal hospital has been overwhelming and I will always be appreciative. We give back to our community by offering individual clinic tours to students interested in the Veterinary Field.
