Being a Collegiate and Professional Athlete in Anchorage for many years has allowed me well known and to have been exposed and develop great relationships with local medical staff, Doctors and Surgeons. These people have watched me work hard to persevere and accomplish my dream of making it to the highest level and along the way they've gotten to know me and are very aware of my character, therefore they respect and trust me. They know me to be honest, professional, positive, hardworking, passionate, charismatic and that I will be the best Representative of a Medical Equipment Company they've ever seen and dealt with. I will do whatever it takes to deliver the best service. People in Anchorage and all who know me everywhere else know I have never given up, that I have worked hard and grinded the toughest possible way to the NHL.
