I was born in a small town outside of Sun Valley, Idaho and spent my formative years exploring the mountains, streams and lakes of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. It was there that I gained a great appreciation of and respect for the beauties of nature, which led to my interest in the Sciences. As I have traveled throughout the United States, and to foreign countries, I have discovered that there is beauty everywhere. I have enjoyed hiking in the Rockies, the Grand Canyon, the diverse and colorful Utah canyons, and am discovering Texas.
I graduated from a Junior College in Idaho with an associates of arts degree. I continued my education at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah where I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree with an emphasis in Biology and Middle School Science. I also have degrees in Spanish and ELL. I continued my education at the University of Utah and Utah Valley University where I pursued courses in Education and Accounting.
My favorite hobby is spending time with my family. I have several grandchildren, which are the delight of my life. My husband and I visit our children and grandchildren as much as possible, and in the summers we spend our time sailing up and down the East coast on our sailboat. We just finished a route from Maine to Virginia where we were able to observe varying weather conditions, currents, winds, seals, dolphins, whales and many other living creatures. The world is truly a large, outdoor Science laboratory.
