I was born and raised in central California on a fruit farm, then attended and graduated from BYU, served a mission to South Africa, did humanitarian work for 3 years in Nigeria, was an editor for the LDS International Magazines, and married when I finally my met husband, John on a blind date when I was 31. We have 3 fabulous kids: Adam, Claire and Aaron. We enjoy traveling and doing what we can to help each other navigate this journey we are all on.
We are heading to Yakima, Washington to open a new LDS Mission on July 1, 2015. We’ll serve there for the next 3 years.
