PATIENT CARE COORDINATOR
I grew up in Southern California for 9 years, lived in the SL Valley, Utah for 9 years where I graduated High School, went to school in Provo and stayed there for 12 years and landed here in Pocatello (where my husband grew up) where I’ve been for 11 years. Hopefully I break the cycle of moving each decade and stay planted. I graduated from BYU with my Bachelors in Marriage, Family and Human Development because I have a passion for relationships and connections. It’s still and I seek out books and studies to read on the topic. My husband and I have 3 adult/teenagers and loved being a SAHM with them. I jumped back into work several years with substituting and being a Special Education Paraprofessional. In 2019 I decided to switch gears and started working with High Desert.

At this company, I specialize in making sure everyone has a good time. Something that patients have to deal with that I would like to change is our natural tendency to wait too long to do anything. Hoping it’ll get better or go away and finally just being willing to settle with the pain. I see over and over again people who have just dealt with the pain and frustration for a really long time and after coming in and finding relief they say, “I wish I would have come in sooner!” I’d love to help people learn how Physical Therapy is a fantastic first option.
I like working here because of the coworkers. The energy. The building. The lifestyle. The grace. The wonderful community members I get to meet and know.
