Tasha King

Medical Assistant

Tasha was adopted from Russia as an infant by her outstandingly caring family, and they moved to Colorado in her early years. After high school, she moved to Grand Junction, CO and graduated from Colorado Mesa University (CMU) with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science in 2018. While finishing her studies, she received her Phlebotomy Certification, from the American Society of Clinical Pathology through CMU.

During her days at CMU, she spent her free time hiking the mesas with her Australian Shepherd, volunteering, and spending time with her friends and family.

After college, Tasha worked in a Physical Therapy clinic where she was constantly in contact with insurance companies. Through her work, she realized the need for membership-based models such as Mint Health Clinics Lone Tree. Models like these simplify the unnecessarily complicated system, and ease the financial pressure that goes hand-in-hand with healthcare. She believes that healthcare should be effective, efficient, and accessible to all and is excited to be a part of a clinic that shares the sentiment.
