Biography: I was raised in a small town by the name of Charleston in the part of the state known as the Bootheel. It was a grat place to be a kid where we enjoyed riding our bikes, sports and hiking to the river to fish.
I first attended college at Murray State University in Kentucky. After that, I transferred to Southeast Mo. State in Cape Girardeau where I graduated with a Bachelor's in Marketing and a minor in Computer Science. Shortly after graduating, I moved to the Denver area where I worked for Kraft foods in both Colorado and Cheyenne, Wyoming. I moved back to St. Louis area where I went to work for the Gillette company in the military division, calling on commissaries throughout the Midwest. While Gillette was a great company to work for, I was never home since my territory was from the Upper part of Michigan to Memphis and points east and west. I graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in 1995. While in practice, I would occasionally sub for St. Louis public schools. While subbing at Gateway, I was asked if I would take over the Sports Medicine department. I have been teaching at Gateway for approximately 22 years while maintaining my practice in Arnold Mo. It is difficult doing both at times, but worth it.
