About Adam:
Adam was born and raised in Western Oregon, and though he still loves Oregon, he does not miss the rain. He enjoys the distinct seasons that the Rocky Mountains provide. He stayed near his hometown for his undergraduate work, but headed to Missoula, MT for his doctoral program where he met his wife Thea, a local pediatric physical therapist. He and Thea love spending time out in Idaho’s beautiful outdoors every chance they get. Adam has worked at NIPT in Hayden since June 2008.
