His candidate statement:

I am honored for this nomination as a CCHP Trustee. I have over 25 years of Correctional Healthcare experience in the state and private setting. I also have 12 years of military service in the Medical Service Corps and the Military Police Corps as a former officer in the United States Army Reserve. I have served on the ACHP Board since 2003 in several capacities as Treasurer, Chair and Past Chair. If elected, I would work towards improving the CCHP exam development, scoring of the CCHP / CCHP-A examinations and making it more responsive to the needs of the correctional health environment. I am very familiar with the healthcare operations in both prisons and jails around the United States. I would very much like to offer my experiences to the CCHP programs and for its continued development in the correctional industry. I know I can make a difference. I sincerely thank you for your consideration.
