 Bio: 

Professionally, my 20 year career has been split between commercial banking and home health care financial leadership.  Shortly after Y2K, I began my professional career as a commercial banking with RBC and in 2005 moved over to Vancity continuing my commercial banking career.  In the Credit Crunch of 2008, I left commercial banking to lead the finances of group of companies in the long term care & home health care field.  Fast forward to the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020 and my career path has landed me with Macdonald’s Home Health Care.  With nearly 20 years of commercial finance experience including 11 years in home health I am confident my knowledge and experience will help steward MHHC’s growth moving forward.

On a personal note, my wife and I have three active boys and a dog so there is always lots going on at home.  In my spare time, I enjoy getting outside running, biking and swimming in an effort to be fit, calm and keep up with them.
