I am a mother of two grown children and three precious grandchildren who I try to spend as much time with as I can outside of work. I grew up an Air Force brat in Germany and England then married my husband and traveled Europe and the U.S. with the army. My husband returned disabled after fighting on the front lines in Desert Storm. I'm so very proud of him and his service. I LOVE my job at UVU. I love to help others and promote our Languages and Cultures Department. I believe that learning a language, other than your native one, helps one to better understand grammar. Our world is an international one and knowing a second or third language will help in ANY job profession. Plus what a wonderful way to explore the beautiful cultures around the world!! I would love to help you answer any questions you have about our Languages and Cultures classes and degrees. Stop by my office, call or email me anytime.
