I have lived in Utah for 12 years now. Before moving here, I lived in Japan my whole life. I have a wonderful husband who speaks Japanese very well so we always speak Japanese to each other. We have 5 children, 3 daughters and 2 sons. Our oldest is 22 years old and our youngest is 13 years old and she is already taller than I am! Our oldest son is currently serving an L.D.S. mission in California and loving it. I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies, and playing the violin. I love cooking and I have worked at many different restaurants including those serving Chinese, Japanese and Italian food, but preparing meals for over 300 students is a new experience for me. I really enjoy working at Ascent Academy and getting to know the students and teachers here.
