Charlie grew up in Terrell, Texas -- a town of about 14,000 people east of Dallas -- where he ranches and runs a medical practice today. His family always had a cow-calf operation, and also owned and operated a livestock aution. He attended Texas A&M University as an undergraduate and got his Doctor of Medicine degree at Texas Tech University. Upon finishing medical school, including his internship and residency at the McLennan County Medical Education and Research Foundation in Waco, Texas, Charlie returned home and began a family medical practice in Terrell. His brother became a veterinarian and also returned to Terrell to join their father in his veterinary practice. With the family all back home, they joined together in various livestock ventures, including cow-calf, stocker and cattle feeding. Charlie is married to Dena, and they have two children.
