I was born and raised in Weber County Utah and graduated high school in 1983. Early on in life I discovered I really enjoyed helping people. I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s degree in Science in Education, and a Doctorate in Industrial/Organizational Psychology. My focus has always been to help individuals excel in all aspects of life, but my real passion is in the areas of leadership and performance improvement. I am very proud to be a team member of UMA and believe there could not be a better group of individuals, all of which are determined on cadet success. My personal interests are outdoor activities such as fishing, scuba, beekeeping, backyard farming, photography, and all sciences. I am a published author and photographer- short story 'Judas Iscariot' included in 'Ramblings of the Wondering Elite ' vol. 1&2. (Mid-1990s- Twin Tower Publishing); cover photo of SIOP Magazine (last printed issue before they went electronic print only).
