Why I obtained my FACHE

"I feel ACHE has been an excellent resource to gain knowledge of healthcare and leadership trends while building a network of professionals outside of my areas of influence. I have appreciated the opportunity to meet and partner with new people throughout this expansive network."     - David

Outside of ACHE

Outside of work, David enjoys hiking, watching Tar Heel sports, and spending time with his wife and two daughters.
