I'm originally from Pryor, Oklahoma, a town that is 45 miles east of Tulsa. At an early age my life took me around the western part of our nation. I have called Absorkee, Montana; Boise, Idaho; Prairie Grove, Alaska; Yukon, Oklahoma; and finally Huntsville, Missouri home by the time I finished high school.

I attended Moberly Jr. College's paramedic program, where I earned my paramedic certification (EMT-P) that was my career from 1979 until 2001. This helped set the stage for my education as a Physician Assistant (PA).  Upon entering PA school, I had every intention of becoming a heart surgeon physician assistant, but I found my calling in Family Medicine. After graduating I was able to meet with Dr. Smith, and we have been an effective Physician-PA team since 2001.

18 years as a paramedic, working in locations from Moberly, Missouri to Tulsa, Oklahoma with the EMSA System, then back to Columbia, Missouri with the University Of Missouri Hospital Trauma Center as both ground and helicopter medic.
Hunting bird and animal, fly fishing, German Shorthair hunting dogs, and local high school sports.

My family includes my wife, Cindy, and our two grown children and a daughter-in-law. My wife and I met and married during my time in Tulsa. Cindy, is a registered professional nurse who spent 18 years with University Hospital before moving to an executive position with a large electronic record company in the Kansas City area.

Both of our children have played high school sports and have been fortunate to continue their love of sports to the college level. 

Geoffrey played football for UM-R (now Missouri S&T) where he earned his degree in petroleum engineering. He is now married and resides in the Dallas metro area. His wife, Steffani, attended Texas Tech where she earned her degree in elementary education (so she gets to keep him inline like she does her school kids). Geoffrey and Steffani have two children, Lakeyn and Landri. 

Our daughter, Sara, was on the track team and graduated from Missouri Valley College with a dual degree in Business Management and Marketing. She is now a department manager at Lowes.
