My husband, John, and I moved to Utah in 2012 with our two children (Michael and Maryn). Originally from New Jersey, I have lived all across the Eastern Time Zone (Maryland, Kentucky, Michigan and Massachusetts). My husband is also an athletic trainer; we met during graduate school at University of Kentucky. Although he is a Michigan Wolverine and I went to Michigan State, we somehow make it work! Our entire family loves the outdoor environment and kid-friendly atmosphere that Utah has to offer.
