“I still remember how fortunate I felt to have landed in the Gallatin Valley. I was amazed by all the hiking trails I got to discover that first summer. I'm thrilled to be part of GVLT, an organization that helps protect lands and trails in Gallatin Valley. I know how much healthier and happy our community is because of this. Nothing makes me happier than to see my patients on the trails.”
