My experience in food services spans over many years and many regions. I attended Brigham Young University and received my Bachelor degree in Business Management from the University of Phoenix. Before coming to UVU, I had assignments in Colleges and Universities in Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. I worked as a Director of Dietary Departments in three hospitals in California and Utah. In all of my assignments and experiences, none have been as rewarding as being Director over UVU Dining Services.

I received an Associates Degree at Stevens-Heneger College in Provo, Utah, in Hospitality and Tourism. Afterwards, I spent about three years in the Hotel and Hospitality field. Then in 1993, I began my career in fine baking. From Heber City, to Provo and Orem,  I gained extensive experience in pastries and dessert production. Among my employers during that 6 year period, were Albertons, Baskin Robbins, and Sams Club. I was fortunate enough to developed significant new business for my employers and gained supervisor skills as well. In 1997 I started my own Wedding Consultant and Wedding Decorations business. I have done weddings all over Utah County, Cache County, Juab County, and Summit Counties for approximately 10 years. This included, planning the reception food, making wedding cakes, developing wedding flowers, wedding decorations, as well consulting with the wedding party. Since my appointment as Catering Manager at Utah Valley University, I have met with many guests from both on and off our campus. Feel free to contact me when you choose to use our campus facilities and select Dining Services to serve your events.
