Bob, Assistant Practice Manager. Bob was born in Ohio, but moved to Jacksonville, NC in 1984.

After 10 years of working two jobs it finally became apparent that he was needed to help manage the practice full time. Around the clinic you can find Bob doing just about anything necessary. As our resident “Jack of all Trades” he helps Danielle with human resources, tracks our inventory, keeps all of our computers and technology working, does all of the physical plant and equipment maintenance, and generally keeps things running smoothly for all of us. Whew! We don’t know how we ever managed without him! In his spare time, Bob enjoys spending time with his family (of course!). He and Dr. Snyder have a wonderful daughter named Taylor, a lab named Leo, and three horses (Bob says three too many!). Bob also enjoys rooting for the Steelers, playing golf and working on the family farm.
