I grew up in southwestern Idaho, which gave me a great appreciation for Mother Nature. Three years after obtaining my bachelor’s degree in accounting, and within two weeks of learning about perfusionists and their role on the cardiac surgery team, I returned to school to become one. I feel fortunate to be in a career where I can give care to those who need it. Because of this opportunity to care for others, I feel a responsibility to become the best I can be. Growing up playing sports, I learned how important it is to improve in my role to help the team be successful, and I continue to live by that same principle on the Kaiser Permanente cardiac team. “Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.” —Tony Robbins
Clinical perfusion is a dynamic and continuously evolving profession, and I find satisfaction in every aspect of it. I enjoy keeping up with new perfusion techniques and breakthroughs that help improve patient care. I am fortunate to work on a team of excellent nurses, cardiac surgeons, physician assistants, anesthesiologists, anesthesia technicians, and others in the cardiac department. I strongly believe that the Kaiser Permanente philosophy of health care allows me to become the best perfusionist I can be.
I enjoy anything and everything that has to do with the outdoors. In an effort to stay as active as possible, I also participate in many sports. I share these interests with my family—my wife, 2 daughters, and son—as often as I can. My kids enjoy playing basketball and soccer and love family camping trips.
