“The secret to joy in work is contained in one word – excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.” – Pearl S. Buck

She is here to help and make a notable difference in this community, district, and country!

Nick has been a family medicine physician and board certified for the past twenty-five years. He has been involved with Hillside since its inception, serving as a volunteer physician many times before becoming Hillside’s first full-time medical director.

“The Toledo District and its people, along with the clinic, have a special place in my life; I consider it very much to be home. I am ready to provide the best care possible to the community of Toledo. I view returning to Hillside as a privilege and am ready to serve the people of Belize once again.”

Help bring free health care to Southern Belize.
