I’m excited to get to know you and help you be as healthy and happy as you can be.
I grew up loving sports, music and the outdoors in Ogden, UT. After high school, I lived in Denmark for two years as a missionary for my church. I then studied biology and nutrition at BYU where I played in a band and met my beautiful wife. My wife is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor who keeps our family healthy and happy. She and my three incredible children are the whole world to me. I attended medical school in Nevada where I also started an organization called WorldMedicalSchool.org to help improve global medical education. I want to support people in taking control of their own healthcare by encouraging healthy lifestyles and helping them to make informed decisions.
My philosophy is that patients should be given the best information and then given the ability to direct their care based on their own values. Now patients have access to a lot more information and they need to be empowered to make their own decisions. As we switch over to a system where patients are in control of and responsible for their own health, we will find that will be prescribing a lot less medication and fewer invasive procedures.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Arizona State University and my Master of Science degree in nursing from Walden University. Before becoming a nurse practitioner, I worked as a registered nurse for over 8 years. I spent most of my nursing career on a busy medical/surgical unit at Honorhealth Shea Hospital.
My family is my world!I love spending time with my husband and four-year-old son. I enjoy hiking, gardening, and taking photos of my family.
I believe that is extremely important to help patients figure out how to prevent diseases so that they never have to experience all of the complications that can occur with so many preventable diseases. I enjoy building long-lasting relationships with my patients and providing them with the information that they need to make healthy lifestyle choices.
