John is happily swimming in a sea of estrogen at home - he and his wife Ursula have three daughters: Josephine (4), Abigail (2), and baby Isabelle (9 months). A family full of water lovers, they are sure to make a "splash" wherever they go - they spend their summers by the pool or at Lake Hickory and visit the blue waters of the Outer Banks throughout the year.

"The main reason I have enjoyed working at UNC over the past decade is by far the people.  The team of health care practitioners I get to work with every day is second to none," says John.  "Everyone has their focus on the patients with a collaborative effort of providing the best care we can every day.  Our patients are a joy to work with and are always appreciative - they are a constant reminder that all the work and effort we put in is always worth it."
