BACKGROUND

I grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia, the home of the University of Virginia. I am the middle son with two brothers. It was important for my parents for all three boys to be self sufficient; each of us had to cook dinner for the family one night per week. Of course, competition was rampant between us, after many grueling hours, I presented my masterpiece, broiled hot dogs stuffed with cheese and wrapped with bacon. I was confident that I was destined to be a great chef. However, my culinary skills paled in comparison to my spelling skills. I was the Spelling Bee Champion at Johnson Elementary school , I received a blue ribbon and a kiss from my teacher.

CAREER HISTORY

I received a Master’s Degree in Health Services Administration -Post Acute Care from George Washington University in Washington D.C. I did a residency for one year in California and didn’t leave for twenty years. I was a leader in skilled nursing operations starting as an Administrator and progressing to senior leadership positions such as General Manager and Chief Operating Officer. At one point in my career, I was asked to assume a leadership position in Human Resources. I did not realize that the position would require a move from San Diego to Toledo! One of my successes in the Human Resources position was championing the outsourcing for the recruiting of Rehabilitation Therapists for a national healthcare provider to the company that Mark Melfi and Ron Walters were part owners. The program that we developed twenty years ago is still in place today. I have the unique pleasure of having been a client before coming to work at endevis. The values that drive me are:  the endevis Core Values plus one – the plus one is “do the right thing” for our employees and customers.

NICHE/SUCCESS STORIES

My niche is Health Care. I am fortunate to have had a wide encompassing career before joining endevis. Although, many of my positions were in Post Acute Care, I worked closely with all services in the health care continuum of services.

OUTSIDE OF WORK

I enjoy travel to out of the way locations – bicycling in Vietnam, being a “beach bum” in Thailand, climbing Machu Picchu and swimming in the Amazon. I enjoy wine tasting and traveling to my favorite vineyards. I have a special penchant for restoring older homes.
