People discover they can work big-city jobs while living in a small town
“Payson is the perfect telecommuters town,” said James Hohl, who helps patients squeeze through insurance mazes for a Wyoming hospital while rarely leaving Payson. Process Engineer Hohl works for St. John’s Community Hospital, but spends most of his time in his Payson home office. From there, he guides patients through the maze of their insurance coverage so that they only receive one bill for services. He and his wife Rachel spent several years struggling with the Wyoming winters before deciding they wanted to return to Arizona — but keep their jobs in Wyoming.
