"I am very thankful to have two professional careers that allow me to help people that are in need.  It is very fulfilling to help someone heal and leave the hospital, or do my best to keep someone from having to go to the hospital all together,"  says Kaleb.  He enjoys every aspect of rodeo and looks forward to being a part of it for many years to come.  Kaleb, his wife, Shawna, and son Jett live in Lolo, MT.
