Meet Chris

Chris is a Virginia Beach native who graduated from Cox High School. He and his wife Lisa, a former marine, are both graduates of the US Naval Academy. Together, they raised five children in Virginia Beach and now have two granddaughters. Their children include a LCDR in the Navy, a lawyer, two doctors, and an engineer in the Air Force.


Chris began his career in the Submarine Force as a Naval Nuclear Engineer. He later earned his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. After 24 years of service, Chris retired from the Navy, earned an MBA from the College of William and Mary, and started a small business with his sister, also an OB/GYN. Chris now serves as the Vice President for Medical Affairs and Director of Medical Education for Riverside Health System.


Since he was elected to serve the citizens of Virginia’s 83rd House District, Chris has consistently delivered results for his constituents and the Commonwealth. He currently serves on the Appropriations Committee where he is the Transportation Subcommittee Chair, Counties Cities & Towns Committee where he is the Vice Chair, and the Health Welfare & Institutions Committee. Outside of the General Assembly session, Chris serves on the Joint Legislative Audit and Review Commission, the Joint Commission on Health Care, the Joint Subcommittee on Coastal Flooding, the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization, and the Hampton Roads Transportation Accountability Commission.

Chris believes that we can achieve the most as a community and a Commonwealth by working together and building consensus. Even on the tough issues that divide us, debate and conversation bring about more progress than hostility and partisanship. Chris has spent his time in Richmond building constructive, thoughtful legislation that improves the lives of his constituents and the citizens of the Commonwealth.
