About Me

I just graduated from BYU with a degree in Accounting (but I don't consider myself an accountant) . I live in Hawaii with my husband. I rarely let a day go by without getting the ocean, whether it be surfing or just a quick swim. I use the ocean as my daily therapy session.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have learned through personal experiences that it is the best way to live a happy life. I'm most happy when I am living my beliefs.

Personal Stories

How can your talents and gifts bless others?

I've learned through teaching others about surfing that we can appreciate our talents even more when we share them.

How can we develop greater harmony in our homes?

Play! My family grew up working really hard but playing even harder. We would have adventures as often as possible and I think that doing so allowed us all to grow closer together. In the times that we played together, we learned so many valuable lessons about ourselves and each other. I'll always cherish those lessons and my husband and I plan to do the same with our own children.

How I live my faith

I always try to set good examples for those around me. I also love following inspiring examples of the people I meet. I figure if I am able to emulate those people (from all religions) around me I will be able to be a better Mormon.
