I have two children and my husband recently passed away. I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for more than 15 years, and I am very happy to be able to serve the children of my community so that they can grow up healthy and strong together with the Bountiful Foundation.
Bountiful's Community Coordinators
