Angie earned a Bachelor’s degree in English at Southern Utah University with a minor in Physical Education and Secondary Education. She also has a Master’s degree in School Counseling from Utah State and a School Administration Endorsement from SUU. After 12 years in public education working as a teacher, a counselor, a coach, and a high school principal, Angie came to Alpine and has been the academic director since 2006. She hired and supervises an amazing group of teachers with an average tenure of more than 8 years at Alpine and even more time teaching in public schools prior to Alpine. She loves hearing from alumni students how well they were prepared at Alpine Academy to be successful in their next academic setting.
Angie’s experience has taught her that high achievement truly is possible for all students (there is a way to reach every child), and effective schools foster a learning culture in every facet of the program. In 2006 Angie was recognized for her work at Alpine Academy with the prestigious Best in State Award, as the best principal in the state of Utah.
Angie is a faithful Chicago Cubs fan and enjoys reading, working in her yard, playing golf, and “avoiding” her kitchen. Her greatest love, however, is her family; her husband Frank and three daughters. She was raised on a small ranch where she learned critical core values, including the importance of resilience and hard work. Her mission in life is to honor her roots by teaching those same values to youth.
