At Davis High School, we understand that military children may move every two to three years. We endeavor to support those who serve in the Armed Services by providing a supportive and enriching educational opportunity for military children.
We have support systems and processes in place to respond to the educational and social-emotional challenges military-connected children face during their transition to a new school and keep them on track to be college, workforce, and life-ready. Military-connected refers to children of service members on active duty, and in the National Guard and Reserves.

I am a single mom of 3 Davis School District Students, with a BS in Family Studies. While I am not personally military connected, I have spent 3 years working as a Family Advocate for the Davis School District. This experience has given me a wealth of knowledge of community resources that can benefit and remove barriers for the students and families of our district. I am passionate about helping families have the tools and confidence they need to succeed. I look forward to using these skills as I work with our military connected families and promoting a military lens through out community.
I enjoy spending time with my children, being outside, reading and traveling.

I am the spouse of an active-duty Air Force servicemember serving 21+ years, mother to 2 school-age children here in Davis County and have 16 years being military-connected. I have my master’s degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice and currently working on my dissertation in Clinical Psychology. I have been a major resource for the military community through working within the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) overseas for several years, in administration and special education, providing services to military students in various capacities.
Favorite duty station: RAF Lakenheath, United Kingdom. Lived there for 6 years and it felt like home. There is endless history and architecture to explore.
Favorite hobby: Running and exploring with my family. We have travelled the world but still love to discover new places.

I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), certified educator, and have years of experience as a School Social Worker. I love my role as a Military Education Therapist with Davis School District. My father was a career Soldier, and I grew up as a military-connected child, moving many times with my father’s Army assignments. While in college, I met and married my husband, a United States Marine. We raised three boys together through many deployments and moves. After twenty-seven years of service, we retired and moved to Utah. I know firsthand that being a military family member is undeniably challenging. I learned to navigate challenges associated with being a military dependent, including the mental health impact of uprooting one’s life, time and time again, as one moves to a new location or works through another deployment and reintegration process. While I understand that military life can be challenging, I also recognize the positive character traits and skills that can be developed through these experiences. I utilize a strength and resiliency-based model to help students develop the skills necessary for them to be successful in school and life.
Favorite duty station: Okinawa, Japan. The island is beautiful and has lots of fun things to do.
Favorite hobby: Going on adventures with family.
