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. She has been in the education since 1994 working as a teacher, a counselor, a coach, and most recently, a high school principal. By making research-based decisions and efficiently using data, she directed a highly successful school for two years before joining Alpine Academy in 2006. Her experience has taught her that high achievement truly is possible for all students, and effective schools foster a learning culture in every facet of the program. She has a firm belief that school success is not a destination, but that true accomplishment comes in the journey of constant school improvement.
Angie values her prior experience at a small high school where she helped develop and implement a plan to improve reading, writing, and mathematical skills. The plan received state-wide recognition, and on the end-of-level testing, her high school was one of the highest achieving schools in the state. 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 loves athletics of any kind, but is particularly fond of basketball and golf. She also enjoys reading working in her yard and “avoiding” her kitchen. Her greatest achievement, however, is her family; her husband Frank and three daughters. She was raised on a small ranch where she learned the value of hard work amongst many other things. She strives to honor her roots for her family and others.
