What was your first job?

My first job was as a cashier at Jake's Brookside in Springville

What can you be found doing when you’re not at work?

I prefer to be doing outdoor activities, but most importantly, I prefer to spend my time away from work enjoying activities with my family! We enjoy camping, 4-wheeling, fishing, hunting, hiking, horseback riding, star gazing, moto cross, target shooting, sports, sitting around the campfire, games, BBQ's, and my all-time favorite thing is to do is watch the sun set.

What can you reveal that people might not expect about you?

I enjoy working on and building things with my hands. I've built: book shelves, dressers, mirrors, hand rails, frames, bedroom furniture, cedar chests, mantles, and more. I can lay tile, hang doors, install windows, install appliances, and build/install finish trim and molding. I do minor plumbing jobs and repairs. I am torn as to whether or not I want to try dabbling with welding... I am mainly worried that if I do learn how, I will become the new welder at our house which would get my husband and boys out of their current roles as welders HaHa! My husband and I owned a decorative curb company for three years that we ran with our kids before selling it as our schedules got busier with other things. I can mix, haul, and lay curb with the best of them. Basically, I am a jack of all trades and a master of none! We worked with the City of Fun Carnival selling light up toys and novelties for 9 years... it was a great way to make money and get in family vacations with the kids while they were young. I am witty and sarcastic. I have a great sense of humor, but most importantly I can joke around and laugh at myself :)

What is your favorite TV show or movie?

I have a two way tie for my favorite movie.... I can't decide between The Goonies or Wild Hogs
