Previous administrative appointments include Associate Dean of Academic and Faculty Affairs at the College of Health Sciences, Division Director of Graduate Athletic Training Education, Director of Rehabilitation Sciences Doctoral Program, Director of Graduate Studies – Division of Athletic Training, and Acting Associate Dean for Research, all at the University of Kentucky. He received the William B.

He recently served on a non-profit called Camp Horsin Around that serves children from throughout Kentucky and surrounding states who have cancer, diabetes, asthma, kidney disease, sight or hearing impairment, special needs or other illnesses.  The facility also provides a camping home for organizations serving autistic children and young clients of Hospice as they deal with the loss of a loved one.  This experience was extremely rewarding and the connection with Peacehaven provides another opportunity to serve.
