Fresh Leadership For Davis County
So who am I?
I am a passionate Republican dedicated to working hard and finding ways to collaborate with others effectively. I am very organized and detail-oriented. In my professional career, I have more than twenty years of customer service experience specializing in productive dialogue and conflict resolution. I enjoy working with others to find long-term ‘win-win’ solutions. I am adept at project management and understanding complex ordinances, processes and policies. I also am proficient in working with elected officials and staff at all levels of government.
My involvement in the Republican Party began at a young age. I remember former President Ronald Reagan talking to the schoolchildren after the Challenger disaster on January 28, 1986. I was in third grade at the time and felt confused about what I had just seen. The comforting words of President Reagan truly helped me . At that moment, I decided that I wanted to be a Republican and I have never looked back! I have enjoyed serving as a Legislative Chair for District 16 on the Davis County Republican Party Executive Committee for the past two years. Prior to that, I served as a County Delegate for my precinct and greatly enjoyed that experience as well.
My husband Doug and I live in Layton and have been married for 20 years. We have three beautiful children who keep life very busy and adventurous. I am an independent licensed Real Estate Appraiser. I have also worked in corporate fitness for HP (Houston, TX) and as a research assistant at both the University of Utah and Baylor College of Medicine (Houston, TX). I graduated cum laude from the University of Utah with a degree in Psychology and a minor in German.
Serving within my community is my favorite activity! I love being involved and meeting many new people. I am currently serving as a Planning Commissioner for Layton City. I have also served as a Girl Scout Troop Leader, Chair of Fundraising and Finance for our local Boy Scout Troop and Community Council Parent Member and PTA Hospitality Chair. All have been wonderful opportunities to serve and meet so many amazing citizens in this community.
Some interesting facts about me:
You'll find me with a book if I ever have any free time. I love reading, especially anything non-fiction. If you have any suggestions of good reading material, I'd love to hear them!
I am an avid runner. Since 2011, I have completed five full marathons and 40 half marathons. The race is hard, but the finish is so rewarding. I'm always looking forward to my next race!
I love classical music and opera, especially Mozart's "The Magic Flute"!
And so friend, in a nutshell, that's who I am.
Thanks for reading!
