Tell me a little about your background?
I am originally from Ely Nevada, a small rural community of about 6,000 people. I enjoyed growing up in a small community where my parents taught me the value of hard work and provided me with opportunity rather than material things. I attended Utah Valley University where I wrestled for 4 years and learned some incredibly valuable life lessons. Being a D1 athlete has helped me develop strong discipline, respect, teamwork, determination and an unmatched work ethic. I graduated from UVU with a degree in Communications and a relentless desire to explore the medical field.
