Jim and his wife, Jessica, have been married for almost 11 years and have three sons, Preston, Nathan and Owen. Jim was raised in Blackfoot, Idaho and Jessica in Shreveport, Louisiana. Both Jim and Jessica's families are settled in Utah and Southeastern Idaho, so they are excited to be closer to family. They enjoy rural America and the lifestyle it offers.
Jim enjoys spending time with family and friends, woodworking, hunting, fly fishing, backpacking, snowboarding and snowmobiling. Being such an avid outdoorsman, Jim is excited to live in Utah to have a chance to participate in these activities more often. Jessica enjoys spending time with family and friends, photography, reading, stained glass and knitting. Their three boys are very active and enjoy playing with friends, sports, fishing, building forts and igloos, catching snakes, and frequent visits to the ER.
When asked why Jim and his family chose to make the move to Roosevelt, Jim replied "I really enjoy rural healthcare where patients are our friends and family. Also, being in Roosevelt reminded me of where I was raised. We both felt we could see ourselves becoming part of the community and raising our boys here."
When asked what enticed Jim to take this position at Uintah Basin Healthcare, Jim stated "Uintah Basin Healthcare is a very forward thinking organization. I was impressed with the focus on quality, the dedication of the medical staff and employees, the vision of the Board of Trustees and executive team, and the growth that is occurring within the organization. I am excited to be able to be a part of what has been built."
