What year did you move to Greater Gainesville?

I originally moved to the Greater Gainesville area in 2005, and then again
in 2018, as the CEO of North Florida Regional Medical Center. 

What about Greater Gainesville stood out when comparing it to your other options?

Compared to other areas, Greater Gainesville stood out to me because of the opportunity to lead a healthcare system in a progressive community focused on sustainable citizen-centered growth. 

What is your favorite local food? 

One of my favorite dishes is Volcanic Sushi’s “Son’s Special,” which is composed of a tuna tartare mixed with onions and cilantro, encased in shaved avocado. 

Where do you go to escape into nature?

When it comes to nature, I love adventuring out into Lake Santa Fe for some boating, skiing and fishing. 

When friends or family come to visit, where is the first place you take them?

One Love Café is usually my go-to for family outings, as it is a great representation of the outdoor, friendly and eclectic culture of Gainesville.

Describe your ideal day in Greater Gainesville. 

My ideal day in Greater Gainesville would entail an early morning workout at Orange Theory Fitness, followed by a full day at North Florida Regional. I’m truly working side by side with the best physicians and caregivers to provide world-class healthcare to the citizens of Gainesville and the surrounding community. I would then enjoy a late dinner with my family to celebrate the day.
