I have spent my career in Occupational Medicine caring for and treating workers who have been injured on the job and equally working to prevent work related injuries and illnesses through surveillance and prevention programs. Workplace injuries range from cuts and broken bones to repetitive motion disorders, hearing and vision problems, and illness caused by exposure to unsafe chemicals and substances. I also supervise two physician assistants, oversee the hospital employee occupational health program, perform new hire physicals and evaluate employee impairment for permanent disability claims.
I am certified by the Department of Transportation to perform physical examinations and issue medical certificates for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) drivers to meet federal requirements.
I retired from the U.S. Air Force after 28 years of service. Prior to joining NorthBay, I was the civilian medical director of Occupational Medicine Services at Hill Air Force Base in Utah, one of the top occupational medicine units in the Department of Defense.
