January 29, 2015 – Family Health West recently welcomed new board member, Blaine Buck of Bighorn Consulting Engineers. Blaine graduated with a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Colorado State University in 1994. He has been a consulting engineer ever since, starting Bighorn Consulting Engineers in 2003.
Blaine has been living in Colorado since 1971 and moved to Fruita in 2001 with his wife Lori Buck, the current mayor of Fruita. “Lori grew up in Fruita and always talked fondly of it,” said Blaine. “When the opportunity arose to get back to the Grand Valley, Fruita was the only place we considered living.”
“We are so fortunate to have Blaine as a member of our Board,” said Family Health West President and CEO, Mark J. Francis. “Blaine has a sincere interest in the well-being of our community and will certainly be an asset to the organization.”
“I look forward to helping Family Health West advance as it has helped so many in the Fruita community, including my family,” said Blaine. When Blaine is not serving his community, he enjoys spending time with his family and playing golf. “My interests are my wife, my kids, and golf. In that order….although my wife might say that golf sneaks up there in front once in a while.”
