Born and raised in Mississippi, son of a preacher, I was encouraged to give back to the community. As a trained pediatric dentist and an orthodontist, I’ve had the opportunity to go on numerous mission trips providing dental care to those who would other wise not have access. Each experience has left me feeling inspired and blessed. I’m constantly looking for a new way to give.
After twelve years living in the interior of Alaska, I had the opportunity to move to Florida to be near family. In the process, I met and married the love of my life. We both have a heart for philanthropy in all forms. We look forward to joining Dancing with the Stars of St. Johns County to bring awareness and financial support.
I’m excited to be apart of this unique organization and have the opportunity to blessed others through the arts.
