Ever since my days on “the rock” I have held a great debt of gratitude for Ross. I just have yet to find a meaningful way to pay it back. I believe that serving on the Alumni Council will finally allow me to do just that. My career in family medicine has been a successful one; and, I have Ross to thank for that. My time in Dominica was difficult and yet rewarding. My clinical rotations laid the foundation for what I have been able to achieve. Because of the outstanding education I received at Ross, I was able to obtain a very prestigious residency position without having to go through the match. I performed my first job at a rural hospital in South Carolina with great confidence. I dabbled in Urgent Care and other interests for a few years. I have now found my dream job, practicing traditional family medicine in a small two-physician group on the coast. I have four children and four step-children and the most amazing wife. Our huge family shares a beautiful home on the rice fields. I have truly found paradise.
I would love the opportunity to mentor to other potential Ross graduates and to be part of the process that works to maintain a close and active alumni organization. If given the opportunity to serve as an elected member of the RUSM Alumni Council, I will pledge to do my best at whatever is expected of me.
