About Me

I am excited to begin working for the Backman Elementary community!

I have recently returned to Utah after living abroad for ten of the last twelve years.  Most recently, I worked as a school principal in a remote, two-room indigenous school in the interior region of Alaska.  I have also worked as a high school principal in China and in the Middle East.  I enjoy leading educational and service trips throughout Europe and Latin America.

I am from northern Utah and enjoy all that this area has to offer: skiing in feather-light powder, fly fishing on remote mountain streams, camping in high alpine deserts, and canyoneering through red rock canyons.
