Chairman's Message

Hello Cedar Hill, 


As the incoming Chairman of the chamber, I wanted to introduce myself. Many of you know me well and some of you may not. I am a chiropractor who graduated with my doctorate in 1994 from Logan College of Chiropractic. After practicing first in Oklahoma, we moved to Cedar Hill 11 years ago. We opened Expressions Chiropractic and bought Expressions Salon and Spa in 2006. I am married to Lisa and have 2 amazing children, Kalina and Keaton. As a family we love to travel, laugh and watch the Pittsburgh Steelers (sorry, Cowboy fans). Personally, I welcome any opportunity to enjoy a round of golf, eat a great meal and relish in the company of good friends. Cedar Hill is such an outstanding community and I am so excited about this new venture. My motto for the year is "It's time to move forward to make Cedar Hill the premier city we all know it is". I look forward to getting to meet each of you!
