Recently, Don has developed a greater passion and appreciation for hospice care, working as a field marketer himself. It has been a great learning experience that has helped Don relate more to what the patient and their families go through when they are under our service.
Don is blessed with having an incredible staff to lead at Alinea Family Hospice Care. He firmly believes in the quote from Martin Luther King Jr. that “We are all great captains in calm waters!” meaning in the very high stressed environment created by the sheer nature of the business we are in, we must treat everyone involved in the overall situation with patient urgency, compassion, and empathy. This is very important to the ultimate outcome.
Don is married to his beautiful wife and is the father of 2 young gentlemen. He has lived the majority of his life in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and currently resides in Lewisville, Texas. He enjoys spending time with his family, church activities, coaching baseball and football, and hanging out with friends. Don truly believes that Hospice services really provide value and comfort to patients and their families and is blessed to be part of such a wonderful ministry.
