Dr. Bossart's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bossart "Dr Bossart is a native of rural New Jersey but came to Utah for his undergraduate education. After his training in New York City, he knew that the Wasatch front was a good place to raise his family. For twenty-eight years now he has enjoyed this scenic state whether back country skiing in Big Cottonwood canyon, hiking in Capitol Reef or just walking his dog in the foothills. Recently he has found new joy in learning to paint"
