Alisha grew up in a barn... or so it would seem with her enthusiasm for playing outdoors. Her favorite activities include floating the river (any river), bonfires with family, hiking and camping with friends, any sport (besides soccer), and sledding when nothing else is possible. You can find her at every USU athletic event, but her favorites to watch are ones her siblings participate in. After a recent humanitarian trip to the Dominican Republic, she's discovered a deep-seated passion for travel and has been daydreaming about her next trip. 

She was bitten by the dental bug while still in high school through caring for a local dental office after school hours. The thought of helping people with such a vital aspect of their health inspired her to attend the Utah College of Dental Hygiene as soon as she graduated. She was a star student and earned her RDH in 2014 with flying colors. Her loves that her profession allows her to meet new people everyday and becoming fast friends with our fantastic patients. Alisha adores the ability to change lives for the better and appreciates that Dr. Porter and his staff share the same passion.
