Over the years I have held several positions within our company, including Clinical Nursing Assistant, Team Coordinator, RN case manager, Director of Clinical Services, and Regional Clinical Director. I currently serve as the Managing Clinical Director for locations in Springfield and Osceola, Massachusetts.

Director Of Clinical Services


I started my hospice career in 1995 as a QI nurse and transitioned to hospice case manager. I then transferred to clinical education after about seven years and also worked at the regional level with our corporate education department. My position as a Director of Clinical Services over the past 10 years is where I fell in love with hospice and caring for the terminally ill. This is the most rewarding job I have ever had.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a BS in Psychology from NW Missouri State University and a MS in Counseling from SW Missouri State University. I've lived in the Springfield area for 35 years.


I started my hospice career with Hospice of SW Missouri, now known as Compassus, in 1989. I love my current role as Bereavement Coordinator. I am currently a Compassus volunteer and held a position as Counselor for many years. Prior to joining Compassus, I was in private practice and the Director of Admissions at a small hospital.


My wife, Jamie, has been an elementary school teacher for more than 25 years, helping children form a good foundation for future success. We're proud parents of two adult children, Karson, 22, and Kalli, 20. In my spare time I'm a world class powerlifter and advocate for investing in yourself for mental and physical health and longevity. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to meet, serve, and work with the people I do on a daily basis.
