  • Why I am in Education: I strongly believe that the arts are an integral part of education, just as former Secretary of Education, William Bennet, said, “The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic…music, dance, painting, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.”
  • Favorite TV Program: Masterpiece Theatre; Downton Abbey, Poldark, Crimson Field. I also love So You Think You Can Dance!
  • Favorite Book: Ah man....there are so many. I will say that I LOVE young adult literature!
  • Hidden Talent: I've played the piano since I was 6 years old. I can also tumble pretty well.
  • Alma Mater: Riverton High School and Weber State University

  • Hobbies: Outside of school, I spend as much time as possible with my husband Brandon and my kids, Kade and Preslie. I love to sing, play the piano, dance, read, golf, backpack, watch movies, and go swimming.
