Born and raised in Park City, Utah until fifth grade, moved to Salt Lake City and continued education there until senior year. Moved to Reno, Nevada where I graduated from high school. Graduated with a BS degree in Elementary Education from Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. I married my husband 51 years ago in Utah. He was in the Navy so we moved to several paces in the U.S. We have two children, two granddaughters and three great grandchildren. We moved here from Reno over a decade ago. I am currently active with Curry General Hospital Auxiliary and serve on the board of Directors of Curry Health Foundation.
