Get to Know Dr. Poulter

Attending College in San Antonio Texas was a big change from where Dr. Poulter grew up in Utah. The things I cherish the most are the friendships I made and an appreciation for Mexican food. A year after college, he worked as a Ski Patroller in Utah. Dr. Poulter loves cycling, skiing and traveling. It doesn’t matter if it’s cold or warm; Dr. Poulter likes any season when he can be outside.

He enjoys swimming with his family and Saturday morning bike rides through the country with his friends. Some of Dr. Poulter’s favorites include: The Colts, Will Ferrell movies, listening to U2 and watching any of the Star Wars movies with his kids. His favorite book is Empire of the Summer Moon.
