Raised on a farm in southern Arizona, Aaron was a three-sport high school athlete and earned a scholarship to play baseball in college. During his physician assistant training, Aaron spent time in Colorado Springs and was drawn to the sunshine, cooler temperatures, beautiful scenery, and active lifestyle. It didn’t hurt that golf balls went further in Colorado Springs, either.
When Aaron finished his physician assistant program, he and his wife Christina moved to Colorado Springs, where he worked in general orthopedics, sports medicine, trauma, urgent care, and occupational medicine.
Aaron’s wife, Christina, works in internal communications at Compassion International. The couple plays golf frequently, and can also be spotted in Ute Valley Park hiking with their 100-pound dog Max. They also enjoy travel, dining, and anything competitive.
