Physician Placement Specialist, with GMS since 2015

Your adventure starts....where? I would love to take a few years with my family and go everywhere GMS sends Physicians. I would start with the UAE because of the breathtaking architecture, and then I’d head to the South Pacific.

A great moment for you:
My father taught me, “If you can conceive it, you can achieve it.”  My greatest moment was when I knew this was true.

You passions outside of work:
Being a mom is number one.  In addition to that, I’m always prepared to indulge in one of my many athletic pursuits, whether it’s trail running, pilates, barre, yoga, HIIT (high-intensity interval training) or skiing.  On an artistic note, I’m always the one holding up the group to take a photo of something beautiful.

A quote that inspires you:
One moment can change a day, one day can change a life, and one life can change the world.” – Buddha

Why I live in Utah:
The first time I drove up Little Cottonwood Canyon I had the feeling that “I was home.”  The beauty of our state holds me here along with the incredible people. I also love our clean, safe city that plays host to a world-class opera, symphony and ballet, outdoor music festivals, a vibrant business community, contemporary art, and fun sports/activities for kids and families.

Best place I’ve lived:
I love it here. I also enjoyed London because it was the perfect jumping off point to travel all over Europe.

First job:
I was a hostess at Big Ben’s Family Restaurant in my home state of Minnesota.
