More about me:

I am currently the Associate Dean for Student Affairs at Creighton University School of Medicine. I am also a psychologist and a Professor of Family Medicine and Professor of Psychiatry. I have been a faculty member at Creighton University since 1988 and teach classes on a variety of topics related to behavioral medicine, depression, anxiety, and interviewing skills for medical students and residents. In addition, I practice psychology at one of our family medicine clinics.

I am happily married to my wife, Mary, and we have four daughters ages 22, 21, 18, and 14. I truly enjoy working with medical students and assisting in their professional development. I like to spend time cycling, running, fly fishing, reading, and spending time with my family.

Writing these reflections:

I greatly appreciate the opportunity to write these reflections. They provide an opportunity to reflect on the daily readings at a deeper level and determine how best to translate the messages into practical advice for day-to-day living. In doing this, I truly believe we may begin to live out the message of Jesus Christ.
