Kit started his passion for helping people when he began his studies for the priesthood. He studied for the Archdiocese of Louisville in Conception Seminary College where he earned his Undergraduate Degree in Philosophy, shortly after that he decided to pursue his passion for helping people through the field of Nursing. Kit earned his Bachelors Degree in Nursing at Spalding University in Louisville, KY.

After working in the Intensive Care setting for 3 years, he decided to specialize in the field of anesthesia. Kit earned his Graduated Degree at Texas Wesleyan University. After finishing his master degree program he started practicing at Norton Women’s and Children’s Hospital. Kit soon decided to move and join the University of Kentucky, where he still presently provides Anesthesia.

When he is not working at Serenity Health or UK, he enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife BethAnn and co-owner of Serenity Health, along with his many fur babies on their family farm. Both Kit and BethAnn enjoy traveling, and exploring new adventures.

I’m very passionate about what we do here at Serenity Health. Unfortunately, I lost a very dear cousin of mine, Angela due to depression. When I was younger, I was unable to do anything to help her, but now that I can, and I want to help those who are in the same situation as she once was. No one should have to fight the battle of depression alone or feel as it is a hopeless cause. I want to help families, and patients suffering, and it is my hope that no other family has to endure the pain that suicide leaves behind.
