I grew up in Highland Utah.  I have a twin sister and a younger brother.  I love being an Aunt.   I went to school at UVCC (UVSC) for my Associates degree.   Then went to BYU and got my Bachelors of Science with Physical Therapy Emphasis.  Then I found myself in Pocatello, Idaho and went to Idaho State University where I received my Masters of Health Education and my Associate degree as Physical Therapist Assistant. 
   I started working as Physical Therapist Assistant in Home Health for a short time.   After this I started working as a traveling PTA for 2-3 years, I had assignments in Washington and Texas.   I enjoyed the experience of seeing and exploring new places, and meeting new people, still have friends in Texas from my last assignment.   My family convinced me it was time to settle down, and I started working here with South Central Therapies, in October 2012, and have been here for a year now.    I live here in Richfield, Utah now and have enjoyed my new job, people I have met here, and the more rural atmosphere.   
I enjoy exercising,  running,  strength/weight training,  riding my bike,  boot camp, and other activities, if you can’t find me I am more likely at the gym.   I enjoy spending time with my family going on vacations, camping, playing games, spending the holidays together, and other recreational activities.   I like watching sports, especially soccer, basketball, and the Olympics.  I played Junior Varsity Soccer in High School and loved it.  I also enjoy spending time with friends.  I like to read and learn about anything health or exercise related.
