University of Florida
I grew up in Salt Lake City, UT as the oldest of four kids. I wanted to be a lot of things when I was little but was always interested in physiology and how the body works. I was a lifeguard since I was 15 and often visited my mom, who worked in a hospital as a dietitian when she was at work.
I love working in community health, especially after completing a rotation in a mobile clinic. I was ready to move back west, and Mountain Park seemed like a great place to work. I love the feeling I get working with our patients. I believe in having a positive outlook, trying to understand what others are going through, and knowing that a smile always goes a long way.
I love anything outdoors, including running, biking, hiking, snowboarding, snowshoeing, you name it! I recently completed a half-Iron Man and am getting into triathlons. I balance all of my athletics with great food and love shopping at local markets.
