Spent 33 years in education--first as a teacher, and then as a principal. Now retired and trying to find my creative self. Learning lots of new things like improving my writing, stained glass, and improving my photography. I serve on a board as the president of the Salt Lake Affiliate for NAMI and volunteer in many other various capacities. I'm married and we have 4 beautiful children and 2 gorgeous grandchildren. I grew up in Billings, Montana, attended college at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, then transferred to BYU in Provo, UT and graduated with majors in Sociology and Elelmentary Ed, with the equivalent of one in Philosophy. Graduated later from the LPP program at BYU with a Masters in Educational Leadership.
