Hi I'm Kris

I'm from the United States. I teach Microbiology at the local college. I'm a mom and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My family moved several times as I was growing up. I have lived in several states within the United States. I completed a BS in Animal Science and a MS in Microbiology. I am a full time mom of three kids and a part time professor at the local college. I am also a Girl Scout Troop Leader for my daughter's troop. I enjoy reading. My favorite books are fantasy/sci-fi, mystery, and adventure novels. I also enjoy reading a variety of classics as well as non-fiction accounts. I'm training for my first Triathlon and volunteering at the State Health Department in a Molecular Biology Lab.

Why I am a Mormon

I come from Mormon pioneer ancestors. I was born and raised a Mormon. At twelve years old I began to question what I believed and began investigating other beliefs to better understand my own. I spent a great deal of time in prayer and study and felt God's confirmation that I was where he wanted me to be. I feel God's hand in my life every day. The Gospel of Jesus Christ brings happiness and peace to my life and the life of my family. I thank God every day for having been taught the Gospel of Christ as a child.

How I live my faith

I am the President of our congregation's Sunday School program for the children. I make sure we are meeting the needs of each child and helping them to feel God's love for them as individual children of our Heavenly Father.
