Born in American Fork in March of '86, I have spent my whole life in Utah County. A studious child who spent lunchtimes reading in the library, I have always enjoyed learning and observing. I married my husband in 2008, and he and I have three children, 10, 8, and 5. When we moved to Vineyard, I discovered there was a place for me to apply what I have learned and continue to learn in my life, and over the last few years, while caring for my children and building a life with my husband, I have had the privilege of becoming increasingly involved in goings-on in the city. In my personal time, I enjoy learning, reading, drawing, painting, playing piano, singing, yoga, gardening, photography, writing, and listening to music.
As the Vineyard garden lady, I look forward to continuing to develop education programs for residents for their gardens and landscapes, as well as helping to ensure we select the most appropriate plants for our parks and public spaces. I am eager to witness the construction of our downtown, an opportunity to revisit a more traditional way of community building with the wonderful work of Jeff Speck. Expanding our community garden, working with local organizations on social equity and opportunity, enhancing our sustainability standards, and bringing more art and culture to this budding city are just some of the things I look forward to participating in. I am honored to have been entrusted with this position, and I look forward to working with our council and mayor to make progress for our citizens over the next four years.
