Managing Partner - SoMed Solutions, LLC
Jan 2013 - Present

Today's physicians are scientifically trained healers and we all benefit when they are free to focus more on healing their patients and less on the operations of owning a medical practice. SoMed Solutions provides the expertise and services needed to more effectively manage your practice in this rapidly changing healthcare environment. SoMed relies on a proven methodology and an experienced team of professionals to evaluate your practice and design a suite of suggestions to improve your quality of life and the value of your practice. To insure timely progress, and solid return on your investment, we employ certified project management professionals (PMP) to manage the suggestions you choose to implement, be those solutions our own in-house services or best in class offerings from outside vendors that we have personally vetted on your behalf.

At SoMed Solutions we believe that the connection between patient and healer is the very heart of healing. This core belief fuels everything we do! For a select group of privately owned medical practices, clinics and surgical centers we are the custom designed solution to the problems they face daily.

Finance & Investment Management - Merrill Lynch
Jun 1996 - Feb 2000

Classic stock broker education with a healthy dose of private equity, asset protection and tax-managed investment experience. During the "dot-com boom" my partner and I managed a fee-based portfolio focused heavily on alternative investments, technology, and commercial real estate. As much as I enjoyed the education and competition, Investment Management was not for me, so I sold my practice to a group in Birmingham, AL who eventually became part of Lincoln Financial Wealth Management and I moved to Colorado.
