I was born in Colorado but raised in Jackson attending Jackson Academy and graduating from Jackson Prepatory High School. My college years were spent in Oxford where I was a Cum Laude graduate until I came back to Jackson for medical school. I am a graduate of University of Mississippi Medical School and completed my psychiatric residency at UMMC where I served as Chief Resident. Upon completion of my residency, I began my career at Madison County Medical Center for three years, then later opened a private practice at St. Dominic and worked on staff at Hinds Behavioral Health for 5 years. I served as Staff Psychiatrist and team leader of the outpatient behavioral clinic at the Jackson VA Medical Center for 12 years from 2004 to 2016. I joined UMMC Dept. of Psychiatry in April 2016 as Director of Outpatient Psychiatry then later became Deputy Vice-Chair of Clinical Affairs and Director of the Division of Adult Psychiatry. My wife and our 15 year old triplets live in Jackson where she is the Executive Director of the Mississippi Psychiatric Assn and they are sophomores at Saint Joseph Catholic School.
