Don is a Registered Podiatrist having graduated from Auckland University of Technology in 2015. Originally from the United States, and of Native American descent, Don has enjoyed living in the small town of Te Kuiti with his wife Anne, who is of Ngati Maniapoto descent, for the past 15 years. He has found the Maori and Native American culture share many similarities and enjoys the opportunity to take part in Maori and Te Kuiti community based activities, where possible.
Professionally, Don enjoys the opportunity to care for those dealing with the chronic conditions such as diabetes, and arthritis, as well as providing palliative care to the elderly and those requiring general podiatric services.
When not practising, he enjoys spending time with wife, grandchildren, and caring for four cats and two goats.
