I’ve always been an avid reader and can always entertain myself with a good mystery novel. My creative side enjoys quilting, sewing and tole painting. I like to give homemade gifts for birthdays and holidays. I’ve also entered some of my projects in the Washington County Fair, and have been thrilled to win some nice ribbons.

Education & credentials:

About Mickenzie:

I think C.S. Lewis said it best “We read to know we are not alone.” Reading is my release from the challenges life presents to me on a day to day basis. When I read a book I’m transported to anywhere in the world I can imagine and can become anybody I want to be.

I have lived in Southern Utah for over 15 years. I enjoy reading, collecting movies, traveling, and spending time with my family. I especially love spoiling my nieces and nephews with junk food and toys! My family is the most important thing in my life, I would do anything for them and I know they would do anything for me.
