I relocated from my hometown of Garden City, KS to the Charleston area in 2018. Soon after retiring from a busy 3 doctor practice, I realized how much I missed patient care. I’m happy to have met Dr. Lesslie and I’m enjoying working in her office one day a week. My wife, Gloria, is also an optometrist and enjoying retirement. We have two boys, Connor (age 23) and Zac (age 21), finishing college at Kansas State University. Hopefully, they will move near us after graduation. We enjoy walking our Vizsla’s, Finn and Sadie, on IOP beach in the mornings, and visiting as many new restaurants as possible. I am learning the intricacies of inshore fishing with the changing tides.
