St. Mark’s Family Medicine Residency Representative – Dr. Elise Blaseg

Hometown: Kalispell, MT

Medical School: University of South Dakota School of Medicine

Best thing about Utah? I love the easy access to outdoors. Utah has so many amazing ski areas, state and national parks, hiking trails, and lakes that I love exploring with my husband and our dogs.

Favorite way to de-stress: Reading a book on the couch with my dogs or playing Zelda with my husband.

Fun fact: I used to raise pigs when I was growing up in Montana.

Why family medicine? I chose medicine because I wanted to do the most good for the most people and that mentality led me to family medicine. We are so fortunate to work as advocates within our communities to foment positive change in all ages and stages of life.
