Brandon Thomas, Valley's Nurse Practitioner

                Brandon Thomas, Family Nurse Practitioner, has honed his skill well. He not only has the schooling to back him up but he has put in the time. He began with an Associate degree in Nursing at Dixie State University, then went on for a Bachelors from SUU in Integrated Studies, continued to receive his Bachelors in Nursing at DSU, and completed his Family Nurse Practitioner Masters at Maryville University, St. Louis, Missouri.

                Thomas, was born a central Utah kid, hailing originally from Delta, Utah. After losing his father, at 12 years old, he moved with his mom and three brothers to Saint George. The family started Recycle USA, with established branches in; St. George, Cedar City, Lindon and Las Vegas. Brandon expanded his holdings to include Trucking USA. The family also established the first skate park in St. George.

                Brandon and his wife, Wendy, have made the Valley their home. The couple has a total of 6 children and 4 grandchildren. Wendy has joined the team at State Bank of Southern Utah – Orderville, as the branch manager. They moved to Lydia’s Canyon and are truly enjoying Valley life.
