WSU Ogden Staff

Benjamin HeatonBenjamin J. Heaton, MD, MOH
Medical Director and Physician

My family moved around quite a bit, growing up, so my “hometown” falls anywhere north of Provo and south of Burley, Idaho. We finally settled in Cache Valley, where my father started his first bakery, in 1991. That makes me a “son of a baker.” I’ve been called worse.

My distinguished academic career began at a quaint little institution once called “Ricks College,” followed by the University of Utah and the Uniformed Services of the Health Sciences. I completed a General Surgery Internship at Wilford Hall Medical Center in San Antonio before relocating across the US, Europe, Middle East, and Southeast Asia with the US Air Force for seven years. I came back to the University of Utah, where I completed a residency in Occupational Medicine, six months before accepting the position at Weber State.

In my free time, I like to fish in the summer and ski in the winter, so the Ogden area is a perfect new hometown.

Jessica LopezJessica Lopez
Medical Assistant

Although a native of Mexico, I truly call Ogden my home. I have always enjoyed helping others, so when I graduated from Ben Lomond High School, I went to Ogden-Weber Tech College to earn my Medical Assistant certification. Since then I have worked in various clinic settings including family practice, gynecology and obstetrics, neurology, gastroenterology, urgent care and have recently found a niche working at Weber State’s Student Health Center. My dream is to become a Physician’s Assistant, so in addition to working at WSU, I am also a student!

When I’m not studying or drowning in homework, I really enjoy being outdoors and being active, so in my free time I’m hiking, trail running, longboarding, snowboarding and camping with my family and friends! My favorite sport to play is basketball even though I’m only 5’3. I also love food and trying new things.

Jami DalyJami Daly
Administrative Specialist

A native of Salt Lake City, Utah, I began my career with Weber State in 2015 at the Children’s School in the College of Education. After taking some time off between high school and college, I came back to school as a non-traditional student and earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Health Administration. I am passionate about serving those in need, so when a position at the Student Health Center opened in 2018, I jumped at the chance to apply my degree and work more directly with students. I have truly enjoyed being a part of this University, as both an employee and as a student.

In my free time, I have five kids, so spending time with family is very important to
me. We enjoy being outdoors, hiking and camping together.

Erin MorrisErin Morris

As a Utah native, I began my pre-pharmacy education at Snow College, continuing on to earn my Bachelors in Pharmacy at the University of Utah. Prior to coming to the Student Health Center, where I have been for the last 8 years, I worked in a pharmacy in retail (Albertsons) and Long Term Care settings. I enjoy working with the students at Weber State.

I enjoy living out in the country and raising my young family, dog, and chickens. My kids like to find random pets like rats, cats, hamsters, fish, tadpoles, snakes, etc. (though we only keep a few!). I run to soccer games, basketball games and taxi my kids everywhere. I enjoy crocheting, walks, food, cooking, and encouraging love and acceptance of all.
