while the question of starting to smoke should always be answered with a resounding no, is it okay for a patient to keep smoking once they enter end of life care?Read More
I earned my degree from Central State University in Business Management and Accounting and, before starting my career in hospice, I earned more than 25 years of experience in the business world working in customer service, financial management and sales.
I was working as an accountant when I realized that I missed the human factor. I wanted to work in a rewarding environment that allowed me to interact with people and make a difference in their lives. Soon after, I began working in palliative care and hospice and found what I had been missing.
Hospice offers rewarding, emotional benefits from helping a patient and their family along their journey. My position with Cura-HPC allows me to offer services that bring comfort and peace of mind to a dire situation.
I believe that my communication, understanding, and patience with patients and their families are important and are what allow me to be successful. To each individual I encounter, I deliver the message that, whatever you’re going through, I’m going to be there with you every step of the way.
Outside of hospice, I’ve also been proud to serve with the Tulsa Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce Hospitality Board, as Chief Operating Officer for Greater Union Baptist Church and am a founding member of the North Tulsa Rotary Club.
At home, I have a beautiful family consisting of my wife and two young adult children. I enjoy martial arts, fishing, sports and movies.
