Hi I'm Cameron

I'm a Physician Assistant working in a community health clinic. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I lived in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for two years while volunteering as a missionary for my church. Upon my return, I began college to become a Physician Assistant (PA). 8 years later, I graduated from PA school after becoming married and having two sons. (advice: try to finish school before having children, it's much easier that way :) ) I've now been married for almost 10 years and enjoy my three sons and daughter. I work two jobs and struggle to find time to travel and help my kids appreciate the great blessings they enjoy (a happy family, the great outdoors, etc.).

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was Mormon by name, but not much else. My parents divorced when I was little, and my mom eventually remarried a man with a drinking problem. Living in Utah, I was constantly exposed to and influenced by Mormon beliefs, even if I didn't necessarily understand or believe them myself. Eventually, I decided to learn of the truthfulness of the Church for myself and read the Book of Mormon. After reading most of it, I decided to pray and ask God if it was true, and He answered me in the affirmative. Since that time, I have continued to grow in my belief in the teachings of the Church. I am not the most faith-driven person; I'm a very logical, left-brained person. Nonetheless, throughout the years, I have had numerous faith-inspiring experiences that help to solidify my testimony. As I said earlier, I'm a very logical person, and as I have read and investigated the Church, I have continued to learn that not only is the Church's teachings ground solidly in the "abstract feeling faith", but it is very logical and makes perfect sense. While there are things (both faith-based and logic), that I do not yet understand, I have time and again found that the things I did not understand, later came to light and ran in perfect unison with my faith.

How I live my faith

I have voluntarily spent much of my time in the LDS faith teaching the young boys of my church to become great men. I hope that they may know how to love their wives, teach their children, be productive members of their community, and love their God-given country. As a Physician Assistant, I am always open to questions about my own faith to my patients, but I encourage people of all faiths/beliefs to pursue the healthiest lifestyles possible. This often involves pursuing the same principles I hope to instill in the youth that I instruct. This is an aspect of people's health that I am happy to treat, but is often neglected by many people in our society.
