Hi I'm Jakki

I'm a wife, a mother of 4, a pre-med student, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am married to my very best friend, we were sealed in the Los Angeles Temple 20 years ago. I am a mother of 4 incredible kids as well as a pre-med student who travels the world working in impoverished hospitals. My favorite places have all been in South America!

Why I am a Mormon

My faith in my Savior, Jesus Christ, is what has kept me motivated to remain a strong force in my children's lives, a worthy companion to my husband, and very determined to finish medical school even though it means I am always older than the rest of the students.

How I live my faith

I love to teach new scout leaders about the values the Boy Scouts of America has held onto for so long. I believe these values are what makes a person a well-rounded, positively contributing member of our communities. I love being with the young adults at church because they are trying to find their own way of doing things and I can relate to their quest of becoming an adult.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

I know God lives because of all of the selfless people I see giving so freely of themselves to anyone and everyone. I know bad things happen, but I also know that God made everything we have- not to make it so we will never have to work for anything- but so that we can experience the joy of creating new things and solving problems using the knowledge and skills we have been blessed with.
