Dedicated to community. Strong values.
Forward thinking. Collaborative.
Nathan grew up near Cape Girardeau, in rural Perry County, and moved to Atlanta, GA to complete his Masters in Business Administration and Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Following an opportunity to work with the Atlanta Falcons in developing their team-branded physical therapy clinics, Nathan moved to Washington DC to serve as Associate Director of Federal Government Affairs for the American Physical Therapy Association. In this role, he led the analysis of legislative policy and federal regulations to ensure that the voice of his profession and patients were represented with decision-makers. Daily he had to navigate through the intricacies and inefficiencies of the legislative process and layers of government.
Following his entrepreneurial desire and love of family. Nathan moved back to Cape Girardeau to partner in the launch of a start-up business opportunity. Once in operation, the venture was successfully sold and remains in operation today, providing a unique service offering to the Cape Girardeau region.
Nathan will never miss an opportunity to tell you that the most unimaginable blessing he received upon returning to Southeast Missouri was meeting his wife, Dana. They have three children: Olivia (Sophmore at Knox College), Ella (9th grade Cape Central), and Cooper (Kindergarten at Clippard Elementary). They are always on the go with soccer, volleyball, school academics and more in support of their kids. Sometimes he coaches, sometimes he is just a spectator, but Nathan is always supportive of the team and coaches in developing our youth.
Since moving back to the area, Nathan has stayed involved in government policy and planning through his time on various Boards and committees and as an active business owner with commercial property within Cape Girardeau. He is employed by Saint Francis Medical Center and works with Dana through their company, BOLD Marketing.
Nate’s healthcare policy career and leadership efforts have always involved, in one way or another, identifying innovative solutions for improved outcomes and less cost within one of the most rigid and heavily regulated industries that exists. He takes great pride in thinking outside-of-the-box in ways that ultimately benefit all stakeholders, and he will carry this approach across all policy sectors once in Jefferson City.
Nathan is one who listens to all sides, conducts his own research, evaluates all viable options, and refers to active leadership and those who have served in the past before he moves in a direction. He is selfless – looking at the big picture and most important impact of any decision. But make no mistake, when that decision is made he will work hard to bring it to fruition. Coming from the world of business ownership, Nate knows all too well that being nimble and decisive is a matter of sink-or-swim.
Nathan is a man of faith. He has a strong work ethic. He holds himself to the utmost accountability in his current position serving as City Council Ward 3 representative. He will continue to listen to you – anyone who wants to express ideas, concerns or ask questions.
