A Washington native, Dr. Eaton was born in the small farming/logging community of Enumclaw, Washington in the foothills of Mount Rainier. He is freakishly accurate with a splitting mall. His family was one of the founding families of Enumclaw, and the family still has homesteaded woodlands just outside the city filled with black bear, deer, bobcats, and a roving herd of elk. Following his love of the outdoors, Dr. Eaton started his career in outdoor education and organized camping. He received a Bachelors in Outdoor Recreation from Western Washington University in Bellingham. After several years of leading outdoor trips around the country, he eventually decided to return to academics to be near his future wife in New Paltz, New York, and completed a second Bachelors in Biology while completing pre-medical requirements. Dr. Eaton Attended Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Vallejo, CA and then did his residency training at the University of Wyoming Family Medicine Residency in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Dr. Eaton returned to Washington to follow his passion for academic medicine. Currently he is the Associate Program Director, and he is primarily responsible for the curriculum. In addition, he heads the Osteopathic Track and is active in the WWAMI network as an Osteopathic Principles and Practice Instructor. His personal interests include spending time with his wife and 2 children, reading novels, playing drums, running, and fly fishing.
