Lara French

Patient Coordinator

Lara grew up in Southern California before attending Brigham Young University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in international relations with an emphasis on Japanese. She spent several years living in Japan where she studied and served an LDS mission.

Lara has been working full time in our office for about six years, but with her and Dr French’s last child in college, she has decided to go back to school and pursue her master’s degree in clinical counseling psychology from Pacifica University in Santa Barbara. They have a condensed class schedule there, so she can go out once a month for three days of intense classes, then do the tests, papers and other requirements back here in Santa Fe. She still helps with a few things at the office, so you still might see her from time to time.
