Health, PE, CTE, Financial Literacy

This is my first year at Pioneer where I will be teaching PE, Health, CTE and Financial Literacy.  I graduated from Orem High School and soon after spent the next several years living in Dallas, Boston, Sydney and London, adding 5 children (4 sons and 1 daughter; ages 21-10) to the mix along the way.  After moving back to Utah, I finished a degree in Health Promotion at Weber State and then began working at Huntsman Cancer Institute in Clinical Research where I was able to witness firsthand the amazing strides that are being made in healthcare through drug development.  I transferred to the Department of Dermatology at the University of Utah in a similar capacity, while I completed an MBA with an Emphasis in Healthcare Management from Western Governors University. I live with my husband and children in the Alpine area. I have two sons who play club Ultimate Frisbee, so right now we are spending a lot of time at tournaments.  It’s been a lot of fun meeting families from other states. I am excited for the opportunity to bring many of my own experiences to the classroom, especially in Health and Business. Looking forward to a great year!
