Read about him with his own words taken from the Uchee Pines website.
"Born in Portland, Oregon, my family moved to Orlando, Florida when I was two years old, and I had the privilege of growing up in the same home until I moved to Collegedale, Tennessee to attend Southern Adventist University. While there I met and married my wife, LeEtta, and completed a degree in biology while she completed her degree in nursing.
After two years of college, I served for a year as a student missionary to Belize, Central America. During Christmas break, my wife said, “Yes!” and we were engaged to be married. After returning to Southern, I completed my junior year while my wife completed her senior year, graduating with her bachelor’s of science in nursing. Two weeks after graduation, we were married, and three months after we married, my wife and I moved to the jungles of Nicaragua to run a small clinic in the Miskito Indian village of Francia Sirpi. What fond memories we have of cold showers, hot days, outhouses, snakes, tarantulas, jaguars, driving through rivers, and practicing jungle medicine.
After college, we moved to Loma Linda, California, where I studied medicine. While at Loma Linda, LeEtta and I had our first two children, Amalee and Anthony. When Anthony was four months old, we moved to Michigan, where I began and completed my residency in Emergency Medicine. It was while here that I finally surrendered my heart to God and a transformation began in all of our lives. It was also while here that we had our third and fourth children, Angelise and Amberly. After working for a time in the ER and in urgent care, we moved to Trinidad & Tobago, when Amberly was only four weeks old.
In Trinidad & Tobago, I served as the director of Emergency Medicine and Family Practice at The Community Hospital of Seventh-day Adventists. It was while there that my interest in health education began. My wife and I became involved in radio health programming, church and community health education, cooking schools, natural home remedies classes, community health expo’s, and development of health literature, among other pursuits.
At the time, there were two things that we understood the Lord was calling us to: 1) get our children out of the city and into the county, and 2) begin an exclusively lifestyle-based practice. After consulting with several trusted friends, we moved to Uchee Pines in April, 2012, after having spent 2 ½ years in Trinidad & Tobago.
Since coming to Uchee Pines, our fifth child, Abrielle, was born. I have also had the privilege of serving as a physician in the lifestyle center; counseling with lifestyle guests, students, and staff; teaching in both our Lifestyle Educator and Lifestyle Counselor courses; serving on the executive committee; and traveling around the United States and to Jamaica sharing the good news of God’s healing love and simple, natural remedies.
It is my honor to serve as the president of Uchee Pines Institute, and I look forward to meeting and knowing as many of you as possible as we work together with God, Improving Health One Choice At A Time."
