“My wife Karen and I were high school sweethearts and have been married 30 years. We are blessed to have three wonderful children: our eldest Hannah graduated from my alma mater and is completing her Masters degree – Sarah is at the USMA – West Point and when not firing weapons, studies pre-med – and our youngest Caleb is here with us and competes at Ninja Warrior. We decided to move to the area and join the SpecOrtho team because they made us feel like family from the start. We were also very impressed by their commitment to orthopedic excellence and to the community. Our family has enjoyed many vacations to the wonderful state of South Carolina and now we are proud to call Fort Mill home. I’m also excited for the opportunity to help build a Total Joint Replacement Center of Excellence at the beautiful new Piedmont medical center in Fort Mill.”
