Milestones

My road in life took a while to figure out.
Calls his sophomore year of college his most “critical year” in terms of taking ownership of his education and making an effort to find something he was interested in.
He took a side job painting in order to give himself a chance to find his direction—admits that it was the most confusing time in his life.
Eventually decided to pursue a major in veterinary medicine and began volunteering at a veterinary practice.
After college, he opened his own veterinary practice in Flagstaff, Arizona, where he mainly cared for horses.
The physical demands of being a horse vet along with his desire to be in a more collaborative environment, spurred him to start exploring other opportunities.
Found a position working in new product development and medical device technology at W.L. Gore & Associates that piqued his interest—he has now been working there for 12 years.
Has always found himself drawn to new opportunities and pursuing new adventures; says that making “lateral moves” in his career has impacted his experience and expanded his skill set.
Says it’s not about abandoning interests or passions to explore others; it’s about pursuing opportunities that compel and excite you.
