Hobbies & Background

Jurhee enjoys riding her mountain bike, hiking on mountain trails, doing genealogy, and reading. Jurhee has always loved animals and advocates for animal rights. Jurhee enjoys helping out local animal rescue groups such as RSQ Dogs that supports the rescue of all animals across Utah and bordering states.

Jurhee was born in Salt Lake City and has spent most of her life in Utah. Jurhee did spend a brief summer abroad in Europe, living with relatives who are located there, and spent over two years in Arizona attending law school.

Jurhee ventured into the study of law because of its entanglement within the medical field. Although Jurhee had anticipated a career in medicine, the intertwined complications of the medico-legal field became an intriguing and complicated phenomenon of which Jurhee wished to pursue. With a background immersed in the medical field, research, and biochemistry fields, Jurhee added political science and the field of law in hopes of bringing the medical community together with the legal community and creating a more cohesive structure in which both are able to work towards the goal of helping the individual-the person.
