About Chris

I grew up in Sandy, Utah and graduated from Jordan High.

I mostly worked Mechanic jobs repairing and building trailers, boats, and motorcycles until I was 21. Then I started working in residential real estate for Remax and enjoyed that until the market dropped out in 2009. Once that happened, I managed assets for banks and ran chair lifts while I went back to school to become a Nurse.

After 3 years of classes I decided to accept an Associate degree in Health Science and go back to sales. I then sold advertising with Multiview until they closed their Utah office. That’s when I went to CompHealth to recruit Surgeon’s for hospitals around the U.S. 

After 5.5 years at CompHealth, I decided to take my developed skills to the construction world and I’m really glad that I did.

What I love about recruiting:

I enjoy talking with good people and nurturing relationships. In recruiting I can get to know our clients and candidates and help them to make a very positive change in their lives. I’m passionate about making a difference in the world and here at Peterson Consulting I have the ability to make a large impact.
