About me

My passion has always been to serve others and help them achieve their goals. Medicine has afforded me an incredible opportunity to do this every day. Working in addiction medicine has been a very gratifying experience. Receiving calls from patients I have worked with over the years and hearing them tell me the tremendous positive changes in their lives always inspires me.Over the years, in various organizational leadership roles, I have had the privilege of mentoring and coaching many colleagues and offering career guidance. Now, at Kaiser Permanente, I hope to contribute further to an organization that places the person at the center of the health home.

About my practice

We have a very large Behavioral Health Department and my goal is to help integrate behavioral health services throughout primary care. Since many health problems are related to lifestyle issues such as smoking, lack of exercise and poor nutritional habits, I would like to help our members develop healthier behaviors. My experience working with patients with addiction issues has taught me many approaches to facilitate behavior change. The most important thing I have learned is how to be a better listener. I believe that the story a patient tells about their issues, hopes and dreams is the most significant part of the potential healing and recovery process.

How I thrive

I have been blessed with a tremendous amount of energy. Running, biking and working out in the gym allows me to put some of that energy to good use. My wife and I can often be found hiking the trails of North Georgia with our sixty-five pound chocolate Poodle, CJ.One of my favorite professional activities is giving presentations on subjects like ethics in the workplace, approaches to the treatment of chemical dependency, health coaching, and narrative medicine, which is the use of story to promote healing. I made my debut as a stand-up comedian at the Punchline Comedy Club in Atlanta and often apply my comedic craft at conferences.
