Three years ago, my husband Kenny's job took him to Arizona resulting in the heartbreaking decision to have to leave the job that I love and caring for our patients.   Shortly after moving to Tucson, Rocky Mountain Family Physicians offered me a remote work station which allows me to continue patient support to this day!  Occasionally I do return to the office to help when I am needed. I am happily married almost 36 years, have four beautiful children and FINALLY a perfect little grandson! We enjoy riding our ATV in the desert mountains, hiking and traveling.
