Chief Nursing Officer
Eric has a true passion for the long-term care industry and brings more than a decade of clinical and management experience to his Chief Nursing Officer role. He began his nursing career as a CNA, providing patient care while pursuing his nursing license. He then began work as a long-term care nurse, before later serving as a Director of Nursing, Regional Nurse Manager, and Nurse Practice Educator. Based on his desire to ensure patients and residents had clinicians available for their care, in 2018, he stepped forward as an entrepreneur and started a healthcare staffing agency. Seeing the power of technology to serve more patients, in 2020, Eric sold his agency to Gale Healthcare and joined the company as a Market Manager for the state of Kentucky. Most recently, Eric served as a Regional Market Director, overseeing Gale Healthcare operations across six states. Eric’s clinical background and diverse experiences in long-term care provide strong insights into the daily challenges facing patients, nursing staff, and nursing care facilities.
Eric has been married to his wife, Laura, for 16 years, and is the proud father of two beautiful girls. When not working, he can be found serving at his church or coaching his daughters on the softball field.
