I was born and raised in Orem, Ut. I moved up to Sandy for a new experience and to get into esthetician school. I got into the medical field unintentionally as I was at UVU for Aviation. Aviation is an expensive school and I became a phlebotomist to help cover the bills. I quickly learned after obtaining my private pilot license, that the commercial piloting lifestyle was not going to be for me. So now flying is a passionate hobby of mine instead and I have continued my love of helping others by becoming a Medical Assistant.
My favorite color is a tie of yellow and emerald green. I’m in love with nature and am always growing my collection of indoor plants. And yellow brings warmth, promise, and fun times. I believe we could all use more of that.
My favorite meal is Empanadas, Tequenos, and Malta. You’ll find that’s my go-to birthday meal, followed by cheesecake covered in strawberries, whipped cream, and Nutella.
My favorite vacation spot has been the Caribbean due to the beautiful water and weather. But I have family in different countries and love traveling to visit them as often as I can.
My favorite movie is Tombstone but a close runner-up is The Gentlemen.
I’m not a huge sports fan outside of lacrosse and hockey, I played lacrosse from jr. high to college, but I’ll support the Utes when they play against BYU.
My favorite outdoor activity besides flying is hiking anywhere I can with my dog or taking him on my paddleboard. I enjoy camping, and am a horrible snowboarder, but still enjoy the bunny slope.
As a patient of DETS, you can count on me to be your advocate. I believe living with a chronic illness is a challenge enough, where you go for health care shouldn’t be. I want to be a part of the environment at DETS that feels like a safe space to be honest, and hopeful in your overall wellness.
