What do the day-to-day responsibilities of your role as VP of Finance look like?
I am responsible for everything related to finance, including accounting, payroll, revenue cycle operations, analytics, etc. My day-to-day responsibilities are different depending on the time of the month, and I never have a “routine” day.
What is your favorite part about your current position as VP of Finance for KidsCare?
My favorite part about my current position is that I am able to interact with a wide range of people throughout the organization as well as being able to dive into a wide variety of topics.
How has your role changed since you’ve been at KidsCare?
I have had responsibilities added since I’ve been here, but it’s KidsCare’s growth that has caused my role to change the most. With new markets comes more employees and new ways to analyze metrics to ensure things continue to go well.
When you’re not at work, how do you like to spend your time?
I spend most of my free time with my wife, Samantha, and my daughter, Avery. We go on a lot of adventures. I also enjoy doing projects around the house.

What is the greatest part of working at KidsCare?
Seeing the impact that our clinicians make on their patients’ lives on a daily basis.

KidsCare’s growth excites me because we will have the opportunity to expand our services to more kids and communities in need.
