Born in New Brunswick, Canada. Have four brothers and two sisters. Attended BYU-Hawaii where I met and fell in love with a wonderful man; we were married in the SL Temple. Am the mother of two handsome and incredible sons and three beautiful and extremely capable daughters(our youngest daughter is deceased). Okay, so they are human and not perfect, but they are extremely loved! I also have
a wonderful son-in-law, grandson, granddaughter--who are perfect! And two fantastic daughters-in-law. I don't like the unpleasant things that come with aging such as wrinkles, bad knees, requiring more sleep, etc. Had seven wonderful years working for Utah Governor Michael O. Leavitt and our first woman Governor, Olene S. Walker. Completed my Governor's Office experience as Governor Walker's Director of Boards and Commissions and Gubernatorial Appointments.
