Dave was born and raised in northern Virginia, just outside Washington DC. After he finished his undergrad at the University of Mary Washington, he moved up to Long Island, New York. There he met his wife, Jill, who was in medical school at the time. Dave worked for the Dept. of Social Services of Suffolk County, New York for over 10 years, working directly with Medicaid applicants and helping to determine their eligibility for nursing home care. When Jill finished her residency and was offered a psychiatrist position here in the Central Valley, she and Dave packed up their house, their cat, and their turtle, and drove across the country to start a new life on the west coast. Dave enrolled in the Physical Therapist Assistant program at Carrington College in the fall of 2021 and graduated in the spring of 2023 with honors as a student mentor, the President's List, and the Program Excellence Award. Having worked in the Lodi clinic as a clinical extern during his program, Dave knew firsthand what a wonderful environment they had there, both for patients and for employees. So it was a natural choice for a position as a new graduate. Dave is very excited to be working with the people of Lodi, his new hometown. Outside of the clinic, he enjoys running, cycling, hiking, brewing beer, playing music, and chasing around his 9-month-old son with Jill.
