I have participated in sports and have enjoyed athletics most of my life.  I have been the team physician at Sault High for over 20 years.  I have learned a lot from the Athletic Training Staff at LSSU, they are a blast to work with!  The LSSU athletes are great to work with and highly motivated to get better if injured.

The opportunity to be involved in the Laker Athletic Program is a pleasant contrast to my daily Medical Practice.  I enjoy working with the students in the capacity of team physician and educator.  Watching students progress in their sport, in the classroom and in the athletic training program is very rewarding to me.  I look forward to continued involvement with the fine young men and women athletes of LSSU.
