Originally from Nevada, James moved to Wenatchee, Washington, when he was 13. Before becoming a physician assistant, he worked as an emergency and flight nurse.
James graduated from the Physician Assistant Program at MEDEX Northwest in Seattle, Washington, and completed his clinicals in Las Vegas, Nevada. He is dually board certified in medicine and surgery. After graduating, he worked as the director of two separate emergency departments in Lake Chelan and Newport, Washington.
He relocated to Port Townsend, Washington, in 2003 and worked in orthopedic surgery. From 2006 to 2019, James owned and operated an urgent care center, where he got to know the community and commonly treated multiple generations of patients.
He has chosen not to be in a corporate medicine model, where patients are rushed and feel like just a number. Instead, James treats the entire patient, adopting a holistic approach. For this reason, he has embraced North Star Clinic’s vision since its beginnings in 2019.
In his free time, James stays active with his family. He enjoys outdoor recreation like horseback riding and hunting. He also enjoys watching Seahawks football.
