Cindy was born and raised in northern Utah. She comes from a ranch and rodeo family. Throughout high school and college, she fed cows, hauled hay, and rodeoed. Her success in rodeo has won her several buckles and saddles. She is an excellent rider and has trained several of her own horses. Cindy has three children and six wonderful grandchildren.  Cindy wanted to work for one of the top vets in Idaho Falls, so she started out at Sunnyside Veterinary Clinic as a veterinary technician back in 1995, then switched to receptionist, and is now head receptionist and office manager.
