Tell us a bit about yourself:

I grew up in Lancaster, and moved to Boston for college. Afterwards, I taught English in South Korea for a year and then traveled through Asia and the South Pacific for about 8 months. While enjoying Mai Tais at a beachside bar in the Philippines, I submitted a few law school applications, and eventually moved to St. Louis to pursue my JD/MBA. Since grad school, I’ve worked at a law firm and two health systems. About 6 weeks ago, I decided to try something a little new, and I moved on to a late-stage healthcare startup called Aledade.

I am married to an LGH ER nurse named Hayley, and we have a daughter named Molly who will be two in September. We are expecting another baby any day now! I enjoy spending time with friends and family, exploring the local food scene, and lots of different sports.

What drew you to The Candy  Factory?

I began working at home at the start of the pandemic. When we found out that another baby was on the way, we needed to convert my home office into a nursery. Knowing that I needed a new place to work, I reached out to my cousin Anne who showed me how great The Candy Factory is! I have been loving it so far.
