I was born and lived much of my early life in Houston Texas.  My family moved to Utah when I was 9 years old.  After graduating from Kearns High School I joined the U.S. Air Force Reserves for 6 years.  During that time I married the love of my life Dan.  Soon after our joyous union we moved to Chicago where Dan was pursuing his degree in Physical Therapy.  I put off my education while I worked like an indentured servant to put my man through school.  We returned to Salt Lake City in 1992 which is when I began to pursue my degree in Occupational Therapy at the Salt Lake Community College.  Following my graduation I continued my indentured servitude as a wife and home maker and worked with Central Utah Physical Therapy in the Sevier School District.  I also worked for a number of years with many dear friends at the Richfield Care Center.  When Stonehenge of Richfield was completed I began to work there and have been employed there since that time.  Dan and I are the parents of 5 beautiful children.  I spend my free time pursing my hobbies of Quilting, cooking, raising chickens, gardening, bottling and crafting.
