Angie recently accepted the lead role as Vice President for Alpine Academy. She joined Alpine Academy in 2006 and excelled in her role as Academic Director. Angie was also instrumental in Alpine Academy being named a School of Distinction by the accrediting body, Cognia. Alpine Academy is the only residential treatment center to receive this honor.
Angie received her Bachelors of Arts Degree in English from Southern Utah University, MS Degree in Psychology and MEd in Educational Leadership. She is also certified in special education, guidance counseling, English and PE.
Prior to joining Alpine Academy, Angie worked at a small rural public school for eight years in various roles including guidance counselor, teacher and principal. This experience helped Angie to understand adolescent development, the unique challenges youth face, and the positive impact educators can have on students.
Volunteerism is something Angie has been passionate about for many years. She has spent countless hours volunteering her time coaching basketball and volleyball. Angie believes that athletics is an incredible opportunity to learn the skills needed to overcome life’s stressful situations. She experiences great joy from watching youth learn, improve, work together and gain self-confidence. Angie was fortunate to have several impactful role models during her childhood which made her realize that she wanted to be one of those influential people, too.
Angie grew up on a ranch in rural Utah and comes from a large family including seven sisters and one brother. Together with her husband, Frank, they have three daughters, two son-in-laws and a handful of grandchildren with the hope that more are on the way.
In her spare time, Angie and her family enjoy playing and attending a variety of sporting events and created their own version of the Olympics they call the “Alvey Family Games.” As a family they also attempt to attend one MLB baseball park each year.
Angie’s mission at Alpine is to help each student feel prepared, important, energized and rewarded. Every day on the job she has witnessed evidence in the students that the vital work being done by the Alpine faculty, clinicians and support staff is working. She truly enjoys having a front row seat watching these students as they recognize a path toward a better life.
