I realized we are all connected in wonderful ways. I lived with a farmer/rancher family during one of my clinical rotations in Avon last year, and learned that each farmer and rancher here in the U.S. is carrying the country on their backs. I want to be part of the healthcare team who takes care of these people that toil night and day. I’ve come to Martin to learn from the people, to grow with the community and hopefully to take good care of the families along the way.”
