 "I wanted to find a career that allowed me to use my experience with the Army and be out in the field working with the general public."


Paul is the newest member of the Union County Health Department’s Environmental Health team. Shortly after moving to the United States from Kenya, Paul enlisted in the Army where he earned a Purple Heart for his bravery in the war in Afghanistan.

After serving for more than three years in the Army, he transferred to the Army Reserves to pursue his education at Otterbein University. Paul’s desire to combine his experience in the Army and work hands-on with the general public sparked his interest in public health. A degree in Health Education just made sense.

Paul is a family man. He and his wife Mary live in Westerville and are expecting their first child at the end of the summer.  In his spare time Paul enjoys running, bowling and barbecuing!

Paul will be running point on our O&M assessments this summer. If you happen to see Paul out on the roads, give him a wave!
