Your adventure starts...where? I don't think I could pick any one place, but that is the beauty of locums. A little time here and a little time there and before you know it you've been to places you never imagined going.

A great moment for you: Traveling to Kenya to work at a school for the deaf. It really put my life into perspective.

Your passions outside of work: It all starts and ends with my husband and three children, but I also love to travel and see new places. If I'm not on the road I really enjoy cooking for my family, including my family here at GMS. **Did we mention Lanissa is our favorite coworker?

A quote that inspires you: "Just do it." – Nike

Why I live in Utah: I didn't picture myself living here, but my dad sent me here to go to college and I fell in love with it.

Best place I've lived: My dad was in the military, so I was a rolling stone growing up. I lived in a lot of different places statewide and abroad, but my favorite was Bitburg, Germany. The architecture and history of Europe fascinates me and it was unbelievable to experience it first-hand.

First job: I babysat for a family with five kids for a whopping 25 cents an hour! That's right—five cents per kid per hour—they were paying me the big bucks!
