I was born and raised in Northern California where I learned to love the beauty of the outdoors. I did my undergraduate work at BYU-Provo, originally thinking I wanted to study mechanical engineering. Wanting to promote my own health, I studied human nutrition and weight loss as elective courses. I quickly found a passion in human physiology and health promotion. Ultimately, I changed my career path to medicine as I continued to marvel at the human system. I went to medical school at California Northsate University-COM and completed my residency in Rural Family Medicine at Winnemucca Nevada.
When I am not at work, I am likely on an adventure involving the outdoors or working on a classic car. I enjoy hunting, fishing, and trapping. I value sustainability, independence, and my very spoiled dog. When I discovered the opportunity to work in Alaska as a hospitalist, it was exactly the opportunity I was seeking to further my career goals and satisfy my thirst for nature’s raw beauty and the thrill of adventure.
