My husband and I live in North Ogden with our 3 kids ages 4, 8, and 10. I grew up in Idaho, but have lived in Utah for all of my adult life and I love it! I love being close to the mountains and lakes, and being surrounded by the endless beauty we have here. I love hiking and boating and being out doors, and I am passionate about learning new things, especially all things DIY and crafty. I also love to be silly and have fun!
I have worked with children in various capacities for over 15 years, and I love being a preschool teacher. It is so rewarding to see the children learn and grow, and get excited about school. I'm so grateful for the opportunity to nurture, love, and teach my students!
