Sami Hicks Peterson, CNA
Sami Hicks Peterson has worked at Uinta Academy since March 2022 where she began as a Family Teacher. This experience has taught her how to maximize her role at Uinta, not only as the nursing assistant, but as a direct care staff. Sami attended Bridgeland Applied Technology College where she earned her Certified Nursing Assisting (CNA) license. She has worked in a variety of healthcare roles and is currently furthering her education in nursing. Sami also began working with horses at a young age and enjoys Uinta’s equine therapy and Parelli program. Born and raised in Cache Valley, Sami enjoys spending time with her family, being outdoors, learning, and playing sports.
"Teens and young adults who come to Uinta are pleasantly surprised that they live in a home in a residential neighborhood, that the mountains are right outside their door, and that they get to do all the normal things that teenagers like to do."
