For Brett, the most rewarding part of his job is that he’s helping someone new every twenty minutes. Between what he does and who he gets to work with, he says he never has a boring day.
Originally from Idaho, he fell in love with Utah’s outdoors after moving here to attend BYU. Now, as a dad to five kids, he says he spends a lot of his time being a chauffeur—but still loves to get out with his family for hiking, skiing, and camping.
As a child, Brett endured his fair share of broken bones and even a hip surgery at age four. He recalls how scary it was to spend the night in the hospital without his parents. During his training, he says pediatrics felt like an easy and natural fit. As a Pediatric Physician Assistant, his philosophy on working with kids is to simply treat them like people—and bring treats!
Brett’s clinical interest vary from casting and suturing to helping kids and teens work through ADHD, anxiety, and depression.
Though it may be a controversial issue, he also stands by his love of black licorice ice cream.
Brett is great at getting to work early, but an uninspiring lunch packer. He suspects he’ll be eating the same frozen burrito every day, forever.
