Hi I'm Eric

I was born and raised in the southeastern United States. I perform anesthesia for a living and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Im a 35 year-old married father of four. My wife and I have been married for 11 years. Im a CRNA (certified registered nurse anesthetist) which means I provide anesthesia to people who are having surgery. I enjoy my job and have a deep appreciation for the trust that patients and their families place in me. I consider it a pleasure to provide peace and comfort to those who are encountering the major life event of surgery. I find true joy in my family and look forward to spending time with my children as we share in our discovery of this amazing world. I'm also a huge college football fan. Growing up my family and I would spend fall Saturdays with an RV in Auburn, Alabama for the games. Win or lose we always had fun as a family there.

Why I am a Mormon

My mother joined the Mormon Church a couple of years before I was born, so I grew up as a member. My father later joined when I was seven. I learned as a teenager the peace and comfort the gospel could bring as my family life became more challenging. I desired that others could find this joy so i decided to be a full-time missionary. As a missionary I developed an even greater appreciation for the power Christ's gospel can have in our lives. I saw my life molded to become more Christlike as I served Him and His children. I believe that following God's commandments leads us to the greatest joy and peace in this life. I believe that this chuch has the truths that will guide me and my family to be the best we can be.

How I live my faith

Im a hometeacher which means I have the responsibilty to assist three families I attend church with. I provide them with a monthly gospel message, pray for them when they are sick or in need, and serve them when they are burdened.
