Phil Francis

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Hi! My name is Phil Francis.  I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a 20+ year career working with youth and their families.  My career journey began when I worked as a summer camp counselor in Northern Idaho on Lake Coeur d’ Alene. I immediately fell in love with creating and sharing in adventures with young people. I love to be outdoors and especially to snowboard and mountain bike (Why I moved to Utah)! I have a few kids of my own and can’t wait until they’re old enough for me to chase them around in the mountains. I love working here at Utah Military Academy because we are able to provide our cadets with many opportunities to discover their true identities and prepare them for independence. I have the unique opportunity here at UMA to help cadets identify their goals and help them develop strategies to overcome the obstacles that stand in their way.
