About Gavin:

Gavin was born and raised here in Utah and loves the state’s natural environments, watching the seasons change, and visiting the canyons to hike in the summer or snowboard in the winter. His passion for caring for the pediatric population started when he was a patient at Primary Children’s Hospital as a youth after a four-wheeler accident.

He attended the University of Utah, receiving two undergraduate degrees, one in Health Promotion and Education and the other in Nursing. He spent his nursing career at the Riverton Emergency Department, where he enjoyed caring for the pediatric population. He returned to school for his Master of Science in Nursing from Brigham Young University. He is a board-certified Family Nurse Practitioner and a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners and the National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners.

Gavin is the father of two kiddos who keep him running all the time. He loves spending time with his wife and kids, whether it’s playing sports, hiking and camping, or playing a good competitive board game.

Gavin is passionate about your family’s health and enjoys taking an active role in educating his patients and their families on how to improve their health.

Parent Feedback

We started coming to family first in 2013. We moved away, but came back in 2020, and I knew exactly where to go back for my kids pediatric care. My favorite thing about Toby is that he talks to my kids. He makes them feel welcomed, important, and heard. He also takes the time with me and answers any of my crazy mom questions. Super thorough. You can’t go wrong at Family First. Whenever I had to run in with a sick kid, and Tony isn’t available, we have gotten excellent care by any of the doctors. I can’t think of ever having a bad experience.
