I live in Farmington with my husband of 37 years. I have 5 beautiful children who are all married to wonderful people and 7 incredible grandchildren. I have a degree in Elementary Education from Weber State University. I have spent most of my adult life working with children. I owned and ran my own preschool for 22 years and also worked in many elementary school class rooms. In my spare time I enjoy quilting, reading, knitting and going to the movies or plays with my husband. We also love to travel and I have been lucky enough to visit all 50 states and over 20 countries.

I grew up in Southern Utah, but have lived the last 13 years in Davis County.  I married my High school sweet heart and have four amazing kids.  I am currently working on my degree in Elementary Education at Weber State.  I am so excited to be apart of the Ascent Academy team.  I fell in love with Ascent Academy last year, while volunteering in the classes and getting to know the teachers and staff.  I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends in my spare time.  Some of my favorite things are, boating, hiking, wake boarding/tubing, camping, going to the movies, playing and coaching sports and traveling.  My family is quite adventurous and we love the outdoors.

I grew up in California and graduated from the US Air Force Academy where I received a Bachelor of Science Degree with a minor in French.  I earned a Master of Administrative Science from the University of Montana.  After spending 6 years serving in the Air Force, I became full-time mother and Air Force wife, as well as active volunteer.  My husband’s career in the Air Force moved our family all over the United States.  I’ve spent the last seven years tutoring, substitute teaching and teaching 5th grade at a Utah Charter School. I enjoy the outdoors, especially backpacking, boating and cross country skiing with my husband, Jim, and three children, Jamie, Jimmy and Jonathan.

I am excited to be the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTSALP) visual arts specialist at Ascent Academy. I started working at Ascent when it opened in 2014 and I have enjoyed working in both the elementary and the junior high. I have always had a love for the arts and hope to instill that in the students at Ascent. In high school, I received numerous art awards and a scholarship. After starting as an early college student at Weber State University, I received my bachelor’s degree. I spent several years in the health care field working at an in-patient hospital surgical rehab and operating room. I have been blessed with 3 beautiful children. When my kids began school I spent many hours volunteering in each of their classrooms and the PTA. It’s fun to be recognized around town from those now college age kids that have all grown up and stop to tell me about what they are up too. My oldest is now married and I have one in high school and one in junior high. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband and family, gardening, art and traveling. Wherever our travels take us, we always seek out art galleries and museums. My all-time favorite museum we went to as a family was Norman Rockwell’s home and art gallery in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
