How long you have worked for Upper Valley Family Practice and Urgent Care:
I have practiced in Rexburg for 19 years and have been in solo family medicine with Upper Valley Family Practice since 2005. I added a special interested in functional or natural medicine in 2006 that includes special treatment of fatigue, insomnia, depression, hormone imbalance, infertility and gastrointestinal disorders and food allergies of all kinds.
Favorite part of the job:
I love my patients above all else and I cherish my long term relationships with the whole family. I deliver babies, take care of those children and then deliver those peoples children when they are married. It is very rewarding!
I love a good joke and feel that humor is “the lubricant of life.” I climb mountains for relaxation and love being out in nature. I feel blessed to be invited into the lives of so many good people in life and medicine.
