A year after high school graduation, I spent two years as a full-time missionary in Vancouver, Canada sharing Christ’s gospel to the Vietnamese refugees living there. I have since served as a temple worker in Boise and Provo, and served in multiple church teaching and leadership positions. I am currently emergency preparedness coordinator for our congregation. I published research as an undergraduate on the ocular parasites of Yellowstone Cutthroat and Lake trout and in Medical school on treatments for Bullous Pemphigoid tested using a mouse model with human skin grafts. I graduated in Molecular Biology with a minor in Chemistry with Honors in 1997 from B.Y.U. in Provo, UT. I then attended University of Utah School of Medicine graduating in 2001 and attended the Boise Family Medicine Residency of Idaho, completing my training in 2004 after which I opened a solo private practice in Kuna, Idaho: Advanced Family Medicine. I have since brought on two partners, one of whom left in 2016, and we now have 2 P.A.s as well.
I have travelled annually to Hai Phong, Vietnam to assist in cleft lip and palate surgeries for children there since 2011 with ICSF (see icsfoundation.org) for two weeks each trip, as an interpreter, surgical assistant and post-op provider. I am currently also Medical Director at Southwest Idaho Treatment Center and assistant Medical Director at Lighthouse Hospice.
I married Katy Gardner in our church’s Bountiful Utah temple and we have 2 boys and 5 girls ranging in age from 7-19 y.o. Katy recently started working as an R.N. on St. Luke’s Boise hospital’s Neurosurgical floor. Our oldest daughter is studying Kinesiology at Boise State with plans to be a physical therapist. Our 2nd oldest daughter just graduated from Kuna High School and will attend B.Y.U. Provo in the fall w/plans to be a nurse.
I helped restart the UofU men’s club volleyball team in 1998 and played that season and again in 2000. I coached girls volleyball at Kuna H.S. in 2004, 2006, & for club in 2013. I have coached my kids in Soccer and basketball as well. I completed 2 Olympic and 3 Sprint Triathlons, a marathon, and two team Sprint Triathlons, as well as 2 Century bike races, and Lotoja in 2006, along with the Utah Triple Crank of Cycling in 2016 (4 man 425 mi. Relay, solo 125 mi. Iron Lung and Lotoja races in the same season). My wife and I and 2 friends did the Salt to Saints relay cycling ride in 2019.
I played in one of the BYU Jazz Bands for a year and have sung in many choirs: BYU Men’s chorus, Utah Baroque Ensemble, and most recently the Come Together Kuna Choir.
I learned to play the acoustic guitar in college and have an album with 10 of my songs called “Not Just Fairy Tales” (cdbaby.com, Amazon premium and Spotify carry it), and I am working on a second solo album with both piano and acoustic guitar sacred music. I am working on learning Mandarin Chinese now and writing my biography (06.20)
