Chris worked for his father’s Utah-based construction business and on the two family farms owned by his grandparents through high school.
After high school, Chris served a two-year church mission before marrying his high school sweetheart, Lori. He then graduated from the UofU with a bachelors degree in nursing in 1997 while working to support his family. Chris then began working as an RN in the ER, ICU, and Endoscopy while helping raise his family and finishing his degree from BYU as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 2000. Chris has worked as a Nurse Practitioner for Revere Gastroenterology since.
At the age of 46, he was allowed to serve Utah and our country by joining the Utah Army National Guard.

Chris then graduated from US Army Flight Surgeon Course Fort Rucker. He now supports the US Special Forces and Special Operations Command (SOCOM) as a flight surgeon.
The illness or misfortune of others compels Chris to action. He was part of the Medical Relief Team from Utah that responded to the devastating Typhoon Haiyan that rocked the Philippines.
Chris’ ability to see a task through physically and mentally has been proven time and time again in Ultra Distance Events including RAAM, Ironman, Lotoja, and 100-mile marathons. Chris frequently and routinely jumps from any aircraft in flight in support of US Airborne Operations.
