My name is Mandy. I have bachelors degrees in health science and nursing and work as a nurse in a GI lab at a local hospital...yes, I have heard just about every joke there is on that subject! I enjoy reading, cooking, spending time with family and friends, some hiking, running, and spending time at the gym. My favorite past time by far is travel. I love learning about and experiencing different cultures. I served my mission in New Zealand, spent some time in the Pacific Islands, and quite a bit of time in Central America with some humanitarian work. I love it and hope to keep doing more in the future. I currently teach Gospel Doctrine (the best calling in the church in my biased opinion!) The Gospel, church, and family are a major part of my life.
