I am the proud mother of two beautiful girls Faith and Grace. They are my pride and joy and my inspiration behind this adventure. I am happily married to my best friend Paul for 11 years now and we couldn’t be more excited about our future. I have lived in Yuma most of my life and so has my family. I have strong community connections and I believe this town is special. My husband works along side me and plays in a local band Downtime. My mother Jenny Umphress is currently a Municipal Court Judge and my sister Tammy Porter and her Husband Mike both have very successful local businesses and two boys Mason and Maverick that I adore. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Human Services from University of Phoenix. I have recently finished my coursework for my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from NAU. I worked as a pre school teacher for six years and knew then that education was exactly what I was meant to do. I have extensive knowledge in animal care from my many years in FFA raising animals and participating as an FFA officer. Children, animals, agriculture and this school is what I am passionate about and I can’t wait to share it with your family.
I have extensive experience in finance from my many years as a financial analyst. I moved to Yuma from California to be closer to family and help build this school into something truly amazing. I am married to my amazing wife Monyka and we have a beautiful daughter Natalya. My unique style, personality and forward thinking helps me push this business to the next level.
