Jim uses his specialized training to help adults with neurological conditions, including ALS and CMT.

When not at work, Jim likes to spend time with his family and work outdoors, specifically as a sugarmaker. Funnily enough, he doesn’t actually enjoy maple syrup, but he does love every aspect of the process, especially that it’s something he can do all four seasons.
