What is the first thing you would show a visitor to the Treasure Valley? Why?

I would probably introduce them to our Ridge to Rivers trail system. To me, it’s one of the most remarkable amenities we have. From almost anywhere in the Boise area, you’re only a short distance away from terrific trails, whether for hiking, running or mountain biking (a personal favorite of mine). You can easily get in a light or more ambitious workout before or after work, and the views of the valley from several locations along the trail system are exceptional.

What is your company’s philosophy on the importance of community?

One of the corporate character traits that drew me to Regence was the priority it has always placed on truly serving its neighbors. That’s why it came into being – and from what I’ve seen, that’s still what motivates the company today. Whether it’s cooking breakfast for families at Ronald McDonald House, packing food boxes at The Idaho Foodbank or decorating a playhouse for Habitat for Humanity, my fellow Regence employees never hesitate to step up to serve. It’s core to who we are as individuals and as a proud Idaho company.

What makes the Treasure Valley a great place to live?

Where to begin? For starters, I’d have to say it’s the warm and welcoming nature of the people who live here. Then, the fact that we get to enjoy all four seasons here – with all the outdoor opportunities associated with each. While the valley is growing at a rapid pace, we’ve still managed to hold on to what I’d call an appealing small-town vibe. Finally, I’ve found it to be just a marvelous place for kids and families.

What is the Treasure Valley’s best kept secret?

The Treasure Valley and its communities have been on so many “Best of” lists over the past few years, I can’t imagine that we have many secrets left. I don’t know that it necessarily qualifies as a great unknown or a mystery, but there is one special place I’ve come to appreciate. After being out in my kayak or on my mountain bike burning off calories, I enjoy stopping by Volcanic Farms Pies in Horseshoe Bend. It’s an absolute treasure!
