Born and raised on a farm/ranch in Colorado, Charles served in the U.S. Navy after H.S. and then spent the next 10 years as a carpenter. First licensed in 1995, he spent his first 11 years as a tech at a busy 4 doctor practice where he became interested in and proficient at cytology and has recently volunteered some of his time to teach cytology to the students in the local Vet Tech program here at the University College in Bangor. A busy father of 5 children, Charles has three cats, a boston terrier, and a goldendoodle. He continually uses his carpentry skills to make improvements around the clinic and would like to further sharpen his skills in the field of cytology.
