    In 2005 began my own private practice DeLand and Orange City and enjoyed that until 2008, where I decided to focused my care fulltime to the DeLand community.

    I’m grateful to have studied with some of the world’s most influential podiatrists and with a master surgeon for external fixation. I emphasize in surgery, wound care, sports medicine, and nail disorders as well as general preventative podiatry care.

Also in August, 2016 I was certified with the American Board of Multiple Specialties in Podiatry - Prevention and Treatment of Diabetic Foot Wounds and Diabetic Footwear.
