Bryce and his wife Camillia have six children, ages 5-24. Foster daughter Angelica is 7; McKenna is 15; Kimberly is 10; Isabella is 8; Alaina is 5 and their one son Daniel is 13. Bryce is a member of the Gillette Officiating Association and enjoys officiating local high school basketball and football games. He has coached baseball, basketball and football. He enjoys spending time with the youth as well as being active with his hobbies including sports and recreation, archery, firearms, riding his motorcycle, and spending time with his family.

Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) are advanced practice registered nurses who administer approximately 40 million anesthetics to patients in the United States each year. CRNAs are the primary providers of anesthesia care in rural America, enabling healthcare facilities in medically underserved areas to offer obstetrical, surgical, and trauma stabilization services.

When anesthesia is administered by a nurse anesthetist, it is recognized as the practice of nursing; when administered by an anesthesiologist, it is recognized as the practice of medicine. CRNAs and anesthesiologists work together as a team at CCH to provide exceptional patient care in Campbell County Memorial Hospital's Surgical Services department and at the Powder River Surgery Center.

Join us as we welcome Bryce and his family to Gillette!
