I grew up in Escalante, Utah which is a small farming community in Southern Utah that is about half the size of Rangely.
My wife, Kaitlin, and I have been married for 11 years now and we have two little girls, Ila and Ruby. My wife is also from rural Southern Utah. We love to spend time together outdoors and especially enjoy going camping and fishing. Ila loves to ride her bike and be outside and Ruby enjoys swinging, swimming and playing with her big sister. My wife is an awesome baker and cook! She also fly fishes and hunts.
Practicing in a rural community has always been the goal and we are very excited to be in Rangely. I was especially impressed with the kindness from everyone when we visited here. We chose Rangely because we wanted to live somewhere that we could be part of the community and raise our family in a similar environment that my wife and I were raised in. We love the recreation that Rangely offers and most especially have really enjoyed the people that live here! My greatest accomplishment has been marrying my wife and having our two girls together. My family is the most important thing to me. I am a firm believer that healthcare requires a team approach and a partnership between me and the patient. I try to always listen to and understand the patient so I can give them options that will be best for them. I enjoy the complexity of medicine and especially like taking take of those who have “weathered more years.” I enjoy working with my hands and as a result of this enjoy woodworking, mechanic work and rebuilding small engines. Anything outdoors including hunting, long-range shooting, fly fishing and camping are also hobbies I enjoy. Relaxing for me typically means I am busy doing something outdoors or in the garage. I love German chocolate cake, ice cream, driving my old Land Cruiser and the season Fall. We are slowly exploring the local area but have liked the local Native American history and sites.
