I am a native to Ammon, Idaho where I attended Hillcrest High School. I first explored the Medical field when I completed my CNA training in high school. Following this I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Health Science with an emphasis in Child Development at Brigham Young University-Idaho. Upon graduation I spent two years working as a Community Based Rehabilitation Service Worker locally where I was introduced to Mental Health. I went on to earn my Master’s Degree in Clinical Medical Science where I obtained my Physician Assistant Certificate from Barry University- USVI campus.

I am the type of person who focuses on others needs. I possess a natural interest to say, do, and be whatever is needed to aid in recovery processes. In part, I chose to work in Mental Health to provide coverage for an area that seems to be more and more needed. Growing up in Idaho I have recognized that this great state is underserved in Mental Health. As a Medical Provider I hope that I will help bridge this gap of disparity.
