Bio

I am a graduate of the Oxford City School system and am now beginning my fourth year working in the Oxford City Schools as a Speech-Language Pathologist.  I have worked with children across all grade levels, including preschool-aged children here in the school system and truly enjoy what I do. 

A few years ago, took my family to graduate school to chase my dream of becoming a speech-language pathologist.  It was one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences that I've participated in.  I learned a lot about faith, hard work, and how families can work together to accomplish some pretty amazing things.  I owe a lot to my wife and children for their support which has allowed me to accomplish my dream so that I may serve you and your children here in the Oxford City School system.  I really do love my career!

As a proud father of four young children, I understand how concerned parents are about having their children receive the best education and services available.  I am committed to giving my best effort every day to ensure that every child is receiving the support and services they need to succeed. 

When I'm not at work or doing work-related preparation, I spend time helping my wife at home and playing with my children.  We love to play sports, read, and use our imagination in play together.  I also play the guitar and have written some children's songs.
