However, I also have the distinct privilege of being a member of the faculty at the University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine (UTGSM). Dr. James Neutens, Dr. William Metheny, Dr. Eddie Moore, and Dr. Mitchell Goldman gave me the opportunity of a lifetime when they hired me out of obscurity as a 1st year graduate student in Counselor Education at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. They entrusted me with the research endeavors of medical residents, fellows, faculty, and staff at the UTGSM and allowed me to learn the art of research design and statistical consultation in a great work environment. Then, they honored me with a newly created appointment as a junior faculty member at the UTGSM, where I have worked since June, 2012.
I also want to give "props" to my Mom and Dad. They opened every door for me in life and believed in me, even when they should not have, and even when I did not believe in myself. We will get our trophy back one day, I promise.
And to my wife and step-kids, who have supported me since the inception of Scalë, LLC and Research Engineer, I pledge my love, my time, and my life. I will be the one in one hundred.
Click on the button below to review my curriculum vitae. And please realize that it would not look like it does without the aforementioned people and institutions above taking a chance on me. I am humbled and honored to be in this position and will continue to fight the good fight in my position as a faculty member at UTGSM, Owner and Operator of Scalë, LLC and Research Engineer, and as a man.
