Hi I'm Shaunie

I'm a marathoner. I'm an Adult Basic Education instructor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have 3 passions in my life: my family, running and teaching. I once set a goal to run a marathon for each of my children. Three children and 5 marathons later, I have become hooked on distance running. I love the feeling of freedom I feel as my feet fly, and the sense of accomplishment after a challenging run. Similarly, I have chosen a career that challenges and inspires me. As an Adult Basic Education instructor, I relish in helping my students reach their educational goals of earning their GED's or entering college. I am grateful to have a job that allows me to give back while being a full-time mom.

Why I am a Mormon

As a mom, I am so grateful for the moral compass that the gospel provides me for raising my children. In a world where there is so much uncertainty, I know I can depend on the teachings of the church to guide my parenting. I gain confidence from knowing there is a plan and that by following that plan, I can have an eternal family.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday I work with some of the youngest members of our church in a nursery setting. For 2 hours each week, I lead the 18 month to 3 year old class. Together we sing, play and learn about our Savior. I love their sweet little faces and feel blessed to be a part of their growing faith in Jesus Christ.
