Kevin was known as a loving family member, and a leader and teacher in his fields of Emergency and Sports Medicine. He was proud to serve as a physician for Nashville’s sports teams. Although his time in practice was far too short, his accomplishments and impact on those around him was immense.
As much as Kevin loved his work, his greatest joy was his daughter Adeline. Kevin surrounded himself with family and friends at all times, and enjoyed rooting for the Georgia Bulldogs, playing golf and basketball, hiking and constantly seeking to improve his life and the lives of those around him.
