“Today will never come again. Be a blessing. Be a friend. Encourage someone. Take time to care. Let your words heal, and not wound”. I have always tried to live my life with this saying in mind, and I feel that Voyage Academy teaches this to our students. I am the oldest of six siblings, and as a kid I used to read to them every night. This instilled a love of teaching that has grown with me over the years. I have been working with elementary students for eight years and I am going on my fourth year here at Voyage Academy. I teach life skills and started last year working with the nutrition. I have truly loved Voyage Academy and enjoy coming to work each and every day. It brings such happiness in my life to see all the smiling faces here at school.
I was born in Utah, but spent most of my teenage years living in a small town in Oregon. I moved back to Utah during my junior year of high school, graduating from Northridge High School. I then attended Weber State University. Eighteen years ago I met my best friend and married him. We have five kids, and all but my oldest have attended school at Voyage. Being a mom brings me so much happiness. I am also passionate about animals and everything outdoors. My hobbies include hiking, camping, gardening, running, and of course fitness and nutrition. I am very fortunate to work with so many great people and to spend time with all the wonderful students at Voyage.
