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.

I've been an MA for two years and I love it! When I'm not at work I'm usually at home hanging out with my 4-year-old son, Arlo, my two dogs, and cat. We (my son and I) also love going to the movies, leisurely trips to Target, and having fun at the park.
