Ed had worked in the medical clinics on the Alyeska Pipeline, during it's construction phase, and developed a desire to experience more of Alaska. He moved to the Valley in 1981, with his wife, Brenda, and their young son, Edward. He has worked in primary care, and industrial medicine, since settling here and was a partner in a local family practice clinic for 16 years prior to accepting a position with Capstone Family Medicine in April of 2014. He is enjoying this new phase of his career. Ed was born and raised in a rural farming community, outside of Columbia, S.C.. He served as a FMF corpsman with the Marine Corps in Viet Nam, and has maintained a close relationship with local veteran organizations. He attended the University of S.C., and completed the P.A. program with the Medical University of S.C. in Charleston, S.C. in 1973. He is a big college football fan, and has been an avid fisherman throughout his life. Enjoying their home, yard, greenhouse, and summer time on the deck gives Ed and Brenda much enjoyment. Friends and family are always welcome there.
