Biography

I was raised in Sugar City, Idaho and thus have a great love for this area. I completed my Associates at Ricks College (now BYU-Idaho), my Bachelor’s at Utah State University in Logan Utah, my Master’s at BYU-Provo, and my Doctorate at University of Idaho. I love to spend time with my family doing anything, but especially doing things outdoors.
