What is your educational background?

What do you do day-to-day?

I founded Oklahoma Veterinary Surgery, LLC bringing referral surgeryand eventually ophthalmology to Oklahoma Veterinary Specialists, LLC. As aboard certified veterinary surgeon (ACVS) I love all aspects of veterinary surgery and enjoy performing orthopedic, neurologic, thoracic and abdominal surgery. As the leader of the surgery and ophthalmology practice my primary dayto day responsibilities are patient care, staff management, and facilities management. I love the team we’ve created and like to foster a fun working environment.

What do you love about what you do / what makes you passionate about this?

I knew I wanted to be a vet when I was 5 years old. I’ve alwaysloved animals and thanks to dad’s garage full of tools grew up taking things apart to see how they worked (not animals!). Eventually, I realized I loved small animal surgery and decided to focus on it exclusively through another 4 years of training following vet school.

Outside of work what do you do for fun? (family, hobbies, travel, etc.)

I have a great family and enjoy spending time with my wife, Rachel, and daughter, Charlotte. I enjoy hunting, shooting, spending time outdoors, reading, cooking on occasion,and occasional travel. We attend and serve at Life.church regularly.
