Degree Program Ph.D. Health Services

I joined the Walden faculty to continue finding innovative ways to help students achieve their educational goals. My experience includes eight years of full-time academic experience at traditional universities and 23 years of practice experience in the military within the Army Medical Department. During my time on active duty, I served as a Professor, Financial Manager, Health Administrator, and Paramedic. My Army experiences included work in numerous tactical healthcare delivery organizations within the rapid deployment forces, as well as within the Army's network of traditional hospitals. Positions of noteworthiness included commanding in the 101st Airborne Division, providing graduate-level education to over 250 future health executives, being a hospital Chief Financial Officer, and serving as a medic along the Iron Curtain during the Cold War.
