I graduated from Central Washington University in 1998 and completed my internship in Yakima Washington. I came to work at the Bozeman Clinic in July 1999 after finishing my internship as a clinical lab scientist. In October of 2000, the Bozeman Clinic sent me to Billings to obtain my limited permit in order to assist with taking X-Rays. I am married with two children and now work part-time at the clinic.
