Ethan Baham, DOPGY 3
My name is Ethan Baham, and before moving to Colorado my family and I spent the last 4 years living in Iowa where I attended medical school at Des Moines University. I am originally a Utah native, so it has been nice to make it back to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, even though we are now on the other side. It’s great to be in a place where the people enjoy and appreciate the wilderness as much as I do. Outside of medicine I am the father of three young kiddos that include two wild boys and a little sister. As you can imagine, they keep my wife and I well-occupied. When I do find spare time, I prefer to fill it with board games, frisbee, backpacking, or singing with a rock band. As a physician, I’m excited to serve and work in beautiful Colorado! I believe primary care is an integral part of the healthcare community, and I am proud to be involved in the field of Family Medicine.

Dominick Ruybal, DOPGY 2
Hi, I'm Dominick Ruybal. I'm proud to say that I was born and raised right down the street in Littleton, Colorado. I attended high school at Dakota Ridge High School, completed my Undergraduate degree in Integrative Physiology at the University of Colorado-Boulder and completed my Medical Degree at the Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine at Midwestern University in Glendale, Arizona. As a Colorado native, I cannot express how ecstatic I am to return to my home state to complete my residency training. Being from Colorado I love the outdoors whether it be hiking, backpacking or snowboarding. I also love to travel and frequently find myself adventuring around the world. Aside from that I enjoy time with my family, friends and volunteering. A little known fact about me is that I spent time in Australia during my undergrad and that is where I found my love for surfing which translated into a stint on the professional stand-up paddleboard circuit. One last thing, I am a massive Denver sports fan, so go Broncos, Rockies, Nuggets, Avalanche, Rapids, Mammoth and Outlaws!
Amanda Vester, DOPGY 2
My name is Amanda Vester and I am originally from the small town of Webb City, Missouri. I received an undergraduate degree in Athletic Training from Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri. I decided to take some time off before medical school and first traveled to Uganda for three months. I spent time working in the physical therapy department at a regional hospital and volunteered at an orphanage. I also spent a year as an Athletic Trainer for a high school near my hometown. I then moved to South Carolina for medical school and graduated from Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM). Throughout my training, I fell in love with Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM), primary care, and global outreach. I love the idea of using your hands to diagnose and treat disease using OMM and the amazing relationships built in primary care. I was also provided the unique opportunity through VCOM to work in Tegucigalpa, Honduras for a total of 5 weeks which was an amazing and rewarding experience. Personally, I love to travel, ride bicycles, cook, and spend time with my husband, William and ten-pound Jack Russel/chihuahua mix, Reggie. I feel beyond blessed to be a resident at Sky Ridge Medical Center and get the opportunity to live in beautiful Colorado.

Cody Guggenmos, DOPGY 1
I’m just a farm boy from northern Nebraska. I spent most of my life checking cows and planting corn before running off to Colorado to become a doctor, and decided I should probably stick around for residency too! I love to play sports and stay active during my free time, and would love to discuss the finer points of Husker football or Premier League soccer with you. I also love traveling, and global medicine is a particular passion of mine. I even met my beautiful fiancée on one of the mission trips I took to Ecuador! Looking forward to getting married soon and sharing this crazy journey with someone else!

Like all true Californians, I love my ocean, but the incredible Rocky Mountains makes me forget myself and causes me to do all sorts of things like hike and ski and camp and take endless photos of surrounding nature (I particularly like clouds, sunsets and flowers as my subjects). I’m grateful and excited to be a part of the Sky Ridge Family!
