I am a Life Science Teacher and Mentor with IVLA. I earned a Bachelors and Master’s Degree from Utah State University in Agricultural Science Education. I taught for 4 years in a traditional high school before continuing my career with IVLA.
I live in a small rural town in Southern Utah where I’m surrounded by clear skies, red rocks, and mostly farm country. I was raised on a dairy farm where chores and milking began at 3 AM. I have enjoyed many aspects and areas of agriculture and farm life, but my favorite aspect is teaching! I love science and it’s application to our lives.
I like to ride horses, fish, camp, hike, scrapbook, and garden. I have a great husband, a brand new baby girl, and a Standard Poodle named “Gemma.”
