Dr. David Croshaw joined the CMC Board in February, 2021, and is pleased to serve the residents of Cascade in this capacity. He has substantial background in healthcare and feels a particular aptitude in this industry. Born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho, he left the state for extended periods only for educational purposes and to fulfill missionary service for his church. Undergraduate education was pursued at Idaho State University and Brigham Young University where he earned a BS degree in zoology in 1975. It was during this phase that he met and married Debra Christensen. Together they have raised 6 children, and their brood has subsequently added 22 grandchildren, who all love to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Cascade. Following undergrad completion the Croshaws moved to California to attend Podiatry school in San Francisco, ultimately graduating with a degree of Doctor of Podiatric Medicine in 1979. Then it was back to Pocatello to open Valley Foot and Ankle, a practice of general podiatric medicine with emphasis on foot and ankle surgery. They very much enjoyed the service aspects and patient congeniality of this career. Ultimately this led to the founding of Idaho SurgiCenter Inc., a single-specialty, multi-practice ambulatory surgery center in Pocatello, where Dr. Croshaw served as Chief of Staff and Board chairman until retirement in 2014. It was during this phase (around 2004) that the Croshaw family explored property availability in Cascade. As everyone does, they fell in love with the community and the area, and ultimately purchased a home here. As long-distance part-timers for several years, they looked for the first opportunity to move here full-time. As soon after retirement as possible, they became full-time Cascaders. Enjoying their free time, maybe a little too much for 3-4 years, they finally decided they needed to get involved in the community and provide service wherever possible. For Dr. Croshaw, that initially involved a short stint as a School Board Trustee, followed by appointment and election to the CMC Board of Trustees. He has very much enjoyed his involvement in this capacity since that time.
