“I couldn’t be more grateful to come onboard with Great Falls Clinic at this time. The growth, vision, and energy of this hospital is obvious and palpable. What’s more is the strong desire and expectation of teamwork our leadership demonstrates to meet our goals. I think those fortunate enough to join this team will have a sincere opportunity to influence change, progress the future of medicine and quality patient care in Montana, and experience genuine job satisfaction.”
I believe Great Falls is truly the “Last Best Place” in Montana. Central Montana encompasses all that is Montana: outdoors lifestyle, adventure, agriculture, small town feel, grassroots, and grit. People around here work hard and genuinely act as a contributing member of their community – you won’t find that in other urban areas of Montana. I believe Great Falls stays true to the heart of Montana, our authenticity, and what it means to be a Montanan. The growth Great Falls is experiencing right now is exciting and there is ample opportunity to influence change and create a life you’ve envisioned for yourself here.

I moved to Montana in February of 2022 when we were stationed here by the Air Force. I am originally from Dallas, TX and have come to appreciate the slower pace of life that Great Falls offers. I graduated from the University of Arkansas (Woo Pig Sooie!) with a degree in marketing and management and I have thoroughly enjoyed applying my marketing background to the world of recruitment. I am excited to have joined a fast-growing organization that has such a great impact on our community.

I am a born and raised, small town Montanan who grew up just north of Great Falls. I graduated from the University of Montana, Missoula in December of 2022 with my bachelor’s in psychology and a minor in history. I’m excited to make my return to the education world in the future to obtain a graduate degree in psychology. When I’m not working or thinking about school, you can find me going on adventures, hanging out with family, at the gym, or immersing myself in a good book. I am excited for the opportunity to work for a great organization and be a part of its growth and development. I look forward to meeting you!

Having only recently moved to Great Falls, I’ve somehow found myself amongst some of the greatest! The kindness and family that I’ve gained in such a short time by joining the Great Falls Clinic and Hospital team has been beyond anything I could’ve imagined. My goal is to give every new face I meet the same warmth and welcoming glow that I received as they enter into our extensive brigade. I’ve been handed the opportunity to embrace our new recruits into a career that can last them a lifetime, and I couldn’t be more honored!
