Dr. Fritz a product of the west having grown up on ranch in Chinook, MT, a small town in North Central Montana. She went to Carroll College in Helena, MT. After graduating, she left big sky country with a hope of returning to the northwest after completing medical school. Portneuf fulfilled that dream. It was close to Montana, but more importantly, she was attracted to the vision for the hospital to be the tertiary referral center in the region; the place in southeast Idaho to go for surgery.
She is a gourmet cook who likes to try new recipes and discover new flavors. She enjoys the outdoors and has rediscovered the joy of changing seasons since moving to Pocatello.
