Jamie Cheek & I Discuss Healthcare

#plugintodevin - Your Mark on the World with Devin Thorpe

#plugintodevin Show - Devin Thorpe for Congress Guest: Jamie Cheek Office Sought: Utah's 1st Congressional District Issue: Healthcare. Everyday I see people who can't afford or access healthcare. Growing up my family was on Medicaid. Growing up in a small town, my mother hated using it because "everybody knew everybody." I honestly believe this is why she delayed getting healthcare for herself when she was sick. By the time she went to the doctor, at the age of 35, she was diagnosed with Metastatic Colon Cancer and died within a month of being diagnosed. I was only 16 when she passed, and my brother was 15 and our younger sister was only 3, the same age as my daughter now. My take is that as your Congresswoman, I would fight for affordable and accessible healthcare. We hear too many stories of people delaying going to the doctor for treatable and preventable illnesses because they don't have healthcare. There have been so many stories of people dying from COVID-19 having their last concerns being the financial burden they are leaving to their families for their treatment. America must do better on this issue and I am willing to fight for this when I get to Washington. I firmly believe that healthcare is a human right and that we need to be doing more to help our most vulnerable. We need to stop lining insurance companies profits and focus more on the people who need the access to affordable healthcare. People shouldn't have to worry about the costs of life saving treatment or waiting til the last moment to seek care. Bio: Jamie grew up in Wyoming and moved to Utah nearly a decade ago. She now lives in Ogden with her husband and daughter. She works as a District Director for Utah State of Rehabilitation where she managers a $1 million+ budget as well as supervises over 15 people. Her work allows her to help many of the most vulnerable populations find greater independence through gainful and fulfilling employment. She has decided to run for this congressional seat because Utah Deserves Better. She is focused on issues that can make a difference in the lives of Utahns: a champion for the causes and policies that prioritize people over profits. This includes focusing on issues like affordable healthcare, clearing Utah's air and investing in education. As an unabashed optimist, she rejects the politics of fear and hate that pervade the status quo. “Utahns are compassionate people and our values are not being represented by our politicians, who remain impervious to public sentiment. It is time to elect someone different -- someone who will listen to her constituents and will tirelessly work to make their lives better.” Website: cheekforutah.com Twitter: @cheekforutah Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jamie.cheek.33 Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jamie-cheek-14543930/ Instagram: @cheekforutah #plugintodevin #UtahValues #BoldSolutions #UTpol

Jamie Cheek with Cardo Systems talks tech & connectedness with me - Episode 45

dealership fiXit

Do you like technology? Of course you do!  You are listening to a podcast. These pretty much didn't exist until technology allowed us to take books and such on the go, with iPods and iPhones etc. At one point there was no way to do such a thing with a wire or two to tether you to these grandchildren of Walkman we now use. Now, when you helmet up for a ride - you probably expect to easily access calls and play whatever music of podcast (like this one) that you are in the mood for. Enter bluetooth helmet communicators... They have come a long way since the early 2000's when I heard of but knew nothing about them, except that some old dudes on touring bikes wanted help installing them into their helmets and couldn't be more than a few bikes away from each other to use them!  Check out the episode as MUCH has changed - and will continue to do so.  Cardo Systems states this on their website:  "Our passion is to make your ride exceptional We believe that riding a motorcycle shouldn’t mean you can’t enjoy the company of your friends. That's why we invented the Bluetooth motorcycle communications market back in 2004. We have been reinventing the market ever since. If you have the love for riding, we have the passion to make it truly exceptional!" Jamie Cheek is the VP of Sales for Cardo Systems, based in Texas. He is a legit moto and street riding dude and knows the tech side of things too. If you didn't already know about Cardo getting the tip of the hat to put their system on riders and team at the Monster Energy Cup this year, go to their website and check out the story there. That sort of thing gets me pumped to be witnessing moto history be rewritten. Goosebump stuff! Interesting to see what comes next on that.
