I was born in Tulsa, OK, but I was raised in Farmington, NM, and Liberal, KS. I moved from Kansas to Utah to attend BYU and then served a Spanish speaking mission in New York City. I graduated from BYU, married the love of my life, and then moved to Carson City, Nevada. We eventually returned to Utah where most of our family was living. 4 children and 3 grandchildren later, we have been settled in Lindon, Utah for 10 years. I teach Spanish at Oak Canyon Junior High, as well as coaching cross country and track.
