I live in Park City, Utah. I work for Park City Municipal Corporation as an Executive Assistant. I’m also an aspiring real estate investor. I love skiing, biking, hiking, swimming, reading, and playing with my kids.
I have two sons, Ben and Jimmy, who are the most beautiful things I’ve ever laid eyes on. I never knew how in love, how exhausted, how joyful, and how moody I could be until I became a mother. Ben currently likes dinosaurs and building block towers. Jimmy likes coloring on anything but paper and wrecking Ben’s towers.
I grew up in Utah in the winters and Quebec, Canada in the summers. Every spring my parents, with their five daughters, drove to the Kipawa River Lodge, a vacation spot that my parents own for fishermen, kayakers, and families. I spent my childhood summers swimming in Lake Temiskaming, reading books, building forts in the forest, and playing cards with my sisters. It was the dreamiest childhood imaginable. My dad wrote a book about the lodge. It’s a fun read.
I studied English Language and editing at BYU for my undergraduate degree. Family trips to San Blas, Mexico over Christmas vacations during my childhood spurred my interest in international non-profit and I subsequently received my MPA from BYU. Although I’m not currently working in international non-profit, I’ve loved putting my graduate degree to use working in local government for PCMC.
I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I’m a mormon. I love being a Latter Day Saint because of the knowledge that is found in Christ’s gospel. I also served a mission in South Korea for 18 months and that was a life-changing experience. I’ll forever be in love with the Korean people and their food. Kimchi.
If I had gobs of money I’d live in this house, get a new Madewell wardrobe, live in Spain, donate millions to Operation Underground Railroad and the North Korea Freedom Coalition and the Malala Fund, take an annual ski trip to Japan, and buy at least three Kershisnik originals. Oh, and I’d do all my grocery shopping at Real Foods when I wasn’t eating at Communal.
