“My focus of patient care centers around education between a care provider and a patient; the more you learn about your body, the process of staying healthy, and illnesses you may have, the sooner you are on track to defining health and wellness together as a team.”
In his free time, James enjoys cycling, camping, hiking, and meticulously caring for the landscape around his home. Along with his wife, he also enjoys yard parties, progressive dinners, and cooking memorable meals with friends and family. He believes fitness is a dynamic process of making choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life, including mental well-being and physical activities.
