This is my fifth year here at Wasatch! I am originally from St. George, UT but love the beautiful Heber Valley! I married a Heber boy and we have three sons. We love to hike, camp, boat, and do anything outside. I attended Dixie State Univeristy where I received an Associates of Science, I then finished up at Utah Valley University where I recieved a Bachelors in Biology Education.
I love health sciences and helping introduce and delve deeper into those areas. I teach Introduction to Health Science, Medical Terminology, and Medical Anatomy and Physiology.
Introduction to Health Sciences is a course designed to give you an introduction to anatomy and physiology. We also go into various careers available in the health professions and how different aspects of the health profession work.
Medical Terminology is availbale as a concurrent enrollment course through Utah Valley University. In this course we study vocabulary prefixes, roots, and suffixes based in the medical field.
Medical Anatomy and Physiology covers how the body works on first the chemical level. We then cover each body system and its function and interection with all the other body systems.
Each of these courses are great if you have any interest in the inner workings of the human body and/or interest in going into any profession in the medical field. These are all CTE courses and so there is a state test offered at the end of the course and if you show proficeincey then you are awarded a certificate.
I look forward to a great year with you all!
