New Leadership Delivering Results for Mishawaka and Granger

Meet Don

My Purpose

Thank you for visiting my campaign website. I am running to represent Indiana House District 5 because I believe some manner of public service is incumbent on all of us.  It does not need to be a career but in some way we all should contribute to moving our society forward in a positive manner. 

My Background

My family and I have lived in this area since 1993.  As a physician for the past twenty-five years, I consider myself very fortunate to live and work in Northern Indiana.  I am dismayed and saddened at the level of political division between our “politicians” and their inability to move this community forward.  I think it’s time to bring in new blood, new faces, new thinking, and most importantly, action.

I was born and raised in Tinley Park, Illinois until high school when my Dad was transferred through White Castle to the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  My wife, JoAnne, and I were in the first graduating class of Apple Valley Senior High School in 1977.  After graduating from Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, in Secondary Education (1981), I married my high school sweetheart and then received my medical degree from the University of Minnesota in 1985. 

My internship,  residency, and fellowship took us to Dallas, Texas; St. Louis, Missouri; and Kansas City, Kansas.  After interviewing in thirteen cities in the Midwest, we fell in love with the South Bend-Mishawaka area and knew it was going to be our home.  I started working at Midwest Medical Group as a board certified Interventional Cardiologist in 1993 and am currently employed by Beacon Medical Group.
