Board Member at Merit Preparatory Academy
Heidi and her husband David met and married in Wyoming almost twenty one years ago. She was just a year away from receiving her teaching certificate through the University of Wyoming when they became parents and moved to Utah so that David could finish his degree at Weber State University. Upon completion of his education they moved to Spanish Fork and lived there while he was deployed to Iraq. Upon his return they moved to Payson and have resided there for the past 14 years.
Heidi has spent the past nineteen year as a, mostly, stay at home mom to her three daughters. When her oldest entered kindergarten Heidi became heavily involved with the PTA. She has served in many different roles including Fundraising Chair, Vice President, Secretary and President of her local PTA. Following that she served as President of the South Nebo PTA Council and also served on the School Trust Lands Committee at Wilson Elementary.
Heidi’s passion for education has led her to many opportunities within the field. Teaching art at Spring Lake Elementary in Payson, UT was among her favorites as well as several years as a substitute teacher.
She is now running a business from home and staying involved with the community through volunteer work and is also homeschooling her youngest daughter.
