Starting The Journey
I grew up in the Midwest, with my formative years spent in Iowa and Illinois. After college, the draw of wide-open spaces drew me West. I wanted to spend time skiing, biking, and on the water.
A job offer in medical sales lead me to Idaho. After spending several as a sales representative selling implants and biologics for spine surgery, I transitioned into the clinical laboratory side of medicine. I spent seven years working in that sector educating and facilitating toxicology, pharmacogenetic, and infectious disease testing with a large client base. I enjoyed the technical and clinical aspects of the industry, the complex problem solving, and the people I worked alongside.
I learned a myriad of information about many classes of prescription medication, pharmacology, how the human body metabolizes drugs, and covid-19 testing platforms and processes.
Idaho is a beautiful state, and I am excited to once again call it home.
I will get through this prison sentence with my dignity intact. I have a plan in place for the future. I plan to use this time to recalibrate and prepare for the rest of life. Through this effort, I hope to prove worthy of the trust and love that I receive in abundance.
I will return to Idaho with the foundation for a fulfilling career, continuing friendships, and a plan that lets me hit the ground running while applying the lessons I learned while away. I will continue to grow both personally and as a citizen of the state I appreciate so much.
This process has shown me how much I appreciate family, friends, and community. As I have said in my blog posts – the places I love with the people I care about. I am grateful to have such a strong support network and want that support to extend both ways.
