She holds a BS (cum laude) from the University of Utah and a MEd from Brigham Young University. She is the mother of 6 and the grandmother of 28. She wants children to read TRUE stories.

Besides my 23 years as a counselor, I spent 18 months in London as an employment specialist for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
