I was born and raised on a farrow to finish hog farm a few miles east of Hospers, IA. I went to high school in Orange City before graduating and going through undergrad and vet school at Iowa State University. I graduated from ISU in 2014 with my Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. I have been married to my wife Megan for 11 years and we have been blessed with 4 boys. We live on an acreage near Alton, IA. I started with Farmers Coop Society in late 2019 as veterinarian for the Proven Swine Management team. Before joining FCS I worked as an associate veterinarian for Orange City Vet Clinic for 5 years.
My favorite part of this job is working with an elite team of service managers and caretakers to diagnose and prevent health issues in our barns. I enjoy developing protocols to address potential health challenges before they impact the animals under our care.
Certifications: Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine, ISU 2014, Pork Quality Assurance Advisor
