I graduated from West Virginia University School of Pharmacy in 2001. I completed a PGY-1 Residency at Palmetto Richland Memorial Hospital in Columbia SC in 2002. I completed a PGY-2 Residency in Infectious Diseases at West Virginia Hospitals and Clinics in 2003. I completed a 2-year Antifungal Pharmacology Fellowship at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in 2005. I accepted my current position at Butler in 2005 and was promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure in 2010. I serve as a co-funded faculty with an active practice site at Community Health Network where I am the pharmacy Infectious Diseases Specialist and Co-Chair of the Antimicrobial Stewardship Committee.
My area of active research is in infectious diseases clinical and epidemiological research. My research is focused in answering clinical questions as well as filling gaps in literature, at the practice and beyond. I have authored independent research papers, review articles and book chapters in the area of infectious diseases (see CV).
I serve on several COPHS committees as well as site-based committees as well as national committees that focus on infectious diseases pharmacy.
I am happily married to my wife Carrie and we have 2 children, Allison and Drew. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the gym and exploring the field of biohacking and personal development. I would love to say I am an avid reader, but I am not. With that I do enjoy audiobooks and podcasts and I regularly participate in web-based seminars/podcasts that promote my personal and professional growth.Curriculum Vitae
