Personal  

I am originally from the Seattle area and moved to Utah with my family in 2010.  My husband and I have been married for over 20 years and we have 2 healthy and unique children.  We enjoy the outdoors here in Utah year round by boating, skiing, hiking, checking out the sites around the area, and gardening.  Prior to counseling I taught high school for 15 years at the secondary level, and served as the director of Children’s Ministries in Seattle.
