I was raised in Southern California and have spent my married life bouncing between Utah and California. My husband and I settled in Cedar City after the bouncing got to us, and we love our southern Utah home! I received my bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Brigham Young University. I taught 2nd and 3rd grades for the Alpine School District for two years before becoming a stay-at-home mom. 10 years ago, I began homeschooling my children when my oldest son expressed a strong desire to be homeschooled so that his individual educational needs could be better met. He graduated from our homeschool last year, and I am currently homeschooling my youngest 3 of 6 children. 

I am passionate about supporting others in their educational journeys. I absolutely love working for Athenian and enjoy the experience, challenge and satisfaction that come with this new journey. I also love to spend time with my family going on walks, playing board games, cooking, reading aloud, exploring outdoors and fiddling with our backyard farm.
