I was Born and raised in a military family in the western part of Africa known as Nigeria. The principles of hard work and community were instilled in me at a very young age, as my family travelled around the world living and learning from people with different cultures from ours.

I received my premedical training from The University of Gambia in West Africa, my Doctor of Medicine degree from the American University of Integrative Sciences in Barbados and my Master’s in Business Administration from the University of Northern Iowa.

Inspired by the mission trips I went on as a teen, my focus is to use a patient centered health care delivery model, that elucidates the commercial, social and environmental impact that health care cost has on today’s patients, in a way that generates lasting solutions to their health needs.

I reside in the Cedar Falls area with my wife and 2 sons. The bulk of our activities as a family involve spending quality time together.
