As a Tooele County native, I am excited to join the team at the Tooele Education Foundation and give back to the schools that are so dear to me. I grew up in Pine Canyon, active in sports, FFA and many other activities. These opportunities left a lasting impression on me and love for Tooele County, which I carry into my work at the Tooele Education Foundation.
