I was born and raised in New Jersey. I went to college at the University of Delaware. I went to medical school in a small town in Missouri, then I came back to New Jersey for my internal medicine residency and cardiology fellowship. I trained at a busy hospital in Camden, New Jersey, and did rotations in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I saw a lot of very sick hearts and learned interventional cardiology. I finished my fellowship in 1990 and took a job in Orlando, Florida. I practiced interventional cardiology for over 20 years. At that point, I decided to get into preventative cardiology rather than treat problems after they occur. I have been practicing general/preventative cardiology for going on 13 years. I would prefer to help people avoid having a heart attack rather than take care of them after the fact. I moved to Wyoming in 2020 when I fell in love with the mountains and the people. I also enjoyed Yellowstone and the different life out here rather than in the city. I enjoy fishing and hiking, and this is the perfect environment.
