Interests

When I am not busy chasing my passion for helping teenagers, I am busy chasing my four children 6 and under! We are originally from northern Utah but have lived in a lot of places including North Dakota and Virginia. Our family loves anything outdoors so St. George is a big hit so far for us. Our favorite activities together include backpacking, fishing, hiking, camping, and playing at the park. On the rare occasion I get a free minute alone I like to read and attempt to do crafts. I love dance and the performing arts and did my minor in dance in college.

Comments on DRA

My first time on campus I knew this is the place I wanted to be and where I would choose for my child if they were struggling. Every staff face had a welcoming smile and couldn’t talk enough about their love for the job and the passion they had for helping the youth. The amount of opportunities given to the youth to grow and get help while still being teens with a “normal” life is amazing. The therapeutic environment, the hard-working passionate staff at all levels, and beautiful well-equipped facilities really stand out compared to other places I have had experience with.
