Tennessee Army National Guard

I  was born and raised in the Mississippi Delta but once I became a teen my family relocated to Memphis, TN. I graduated from Cordova High School in 2009 with honors. After a few years in college, I joined the Tennessee Army National Guard as a military police soldier, in 2011 and was deployed to Afghanistan a year later. After returning home from Afghanistan, I returned to college with a focus in medicine. I earned my certification as an Advanced EMT in 2013 as well as my associate in science from Southwest Tennessee Community College in 2014. I continued in college and earned my Bachelor’s in Biomedical Science (Premed), from Baptist College of Health Science (Baptist Health Sciences University) in 2017. I also started working for the Methodist hospital system as an emergency room tech while still being in the ARNG. A few years later in 2021 I graduated with my Master’s in Physician Assistant Studies, from Christian Brother's. I have over 10 years working in the medical field in various positions while maintaining a military career. I have been married to my beautiful wife Jayshree for 11 years, I am a commissioned 1LT in the TNARNG as a PA, and I currently work for the Lt. Col. Luke Weathers, Jr. (Memphis) VA Medical Center as physician assistant in Cardiology. I have been a local Memphian for the majority of my life, and I am truly excited to be a part of BHW Estate. I look forward to serving and helping my fellow veterans
