Born and raised in Kentucky, I have lived all over the state. I grew up in Leitchfield, went to middle school in Georgetown, and high school in Paintsville, which I will always consider home. I attended Western Kentucky University and obtained my Bachelors in Chemistry and Biology. I then moved to Memphis Tennessee and received my Doctor of Optometry Degree from Southern College of Optometry. In my spare time I enjoy golfing, mountain biking, watching UK sports and the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team.
