I grew up in Lake City, Arkansas and graduated from Riverside High School in 1992. Following graduation I went into the Marine Corps and served four years in the infantry.  In 1994, I married a high school friend, Melody.  I have two children, a daughter (Emily) and a son (Wesley) who are both in college now.  I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, scuba diving, spending time with family, and being in the outdoors.  At ASTATE, I currently serve as the Clinical Coordinator for the FNP program.
