I am thrilled to be at Ascent Academy for my second year as the Teacher’s Aide for 3rd grade! Spending time supporting the fabulous educators and students at our school makes this the most rewarding job outside of the home that I’ve ever had.
My family moved to Utah from Southern California when I was nearly 3, so I consider myself a Utahn. I was raised in Salt Lake and South Jordan, and attended Bingham High School. After earning my Associate of Science degree from Salt Lake Community College, I couldn’t wait to marry the best man I’ve ever known and realize my goal of starting a family with him. Now, with my son (14) in 9th grade, and my daughter (10) in 4th grade, I am lucky enough to work where my daughter attends school!
My hobbies include gardening, reading, crochet, yoga and various forms of art. I’ve traveled to multiple states in the US, and recently to Belgium, the Netherlands, and Germany. While I hope to visit many more areas of our country and others, my favorite place in the world to be is home with my family and our two dogs, a cat, two lizards, a fish and a ball python. And a partridge in a pear tree.
