"My medical career originated from my morbid fear of math back in 1989, when I choose to stay away from any career that involved doing calculations or using equations of any kind.
I found my true calling when I joined Rising Health Specialty Clinic in Holladay – it’s such an amazing place that embraces a similar ideology of what I wanted to do all along. I can truly say I love every single encounter I get to do, and I’ve gotten to meet wonderful people who are truly ready to start taking care of themselves."
