Executive Physician Coach, Chief Medical Officer, Philanthropist

About

I have more than 25 years of dedicated bedside practice as a doctor of podiatric medicine in Jacksonville, Florida.  A highly regarded and well-respected clinician, educator, and organizational leader,  I am a Board Certified Wound Specialist and currently serve as the Chief Medical Officer for Omeza, an evidence-based medical technology company and consumer healthcare products company focused on healing and preventing the recurrence of chronic wounds.

I am the Founder and President of the Save A Leg, Save A Life Foundation, a multi-disciplinary non-profit organization dedicated to the reduction in lower extremity amputations and improving wound healing outcomes.  Honored in 2009 and 2018 with the Frist Humanitarian Award, I have been further recognized and elected as a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and is a member of the CLI Global Society.  In my role as Executive Physician Coach, I feel I am uniquely positioned to coach today’s healthcare professionals to a greater level of career progression and satisfaction in their chosen fields.
