After completing his degree in Mortuary Science at John A. Gupton College in Nashville, Scott completed his Funeral Director and Embalmer apprenticeship at a local funeral home and cemetery in Nashville. Previously, he worked as a Pediatric Cardiac Perfusion Assistant at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital for six years and as a supervisor for the organ and tissue recovery team in Ohio and Tennessee for nine years.
When asked what attracted him to funeral service, he said: “My grandfather passed away when I was young, and I had a lot of questions about what the next steps were and when I was going to see him again. Our local funeral home was owned and operated by a family friend who helped me understand the next steps my family needed to take. It was then that I realized I wanted to be a part of funeral service and help families like mine during one of the most difficult times in their life. Each family I serve gives me the greatest sense of pride knowing that I have done everything I can to ease the pain of losing a loved one.”
Outside of work, Scott enjoys making improvements around his home, spending time with his dogs, and going to the lake.
