Chris Carlson- Instructional Assistant
I’m the fifth child out of six. I love my parents and siblings fiercely. My husband comes from a large family as well. Fun little trivia fact, I’m the great aunt to over 120 nieces and nephews. Although we come from large families, we only have two children. One girl and one boy. They are the perfect mix of both of us. I like to spend time with my family, travel, read, and work on projects in my free time.
I got my bachelors degree in Floral Design Management from Ricks College (now BYU-Idaho). I love flowers, especially wedding flowers. I’ve done weddings for over 23 years and owned my own business for 10 of those years.
I’m a right brained person, so any subject that let me use my creative side was my favorite. I can definitely tell you economics was my least favorite. I dropped that course like a hot potato.
I love traveling and seeing new places. I’ve had the opportunity to see 47 of the 50 states, and travel to over 17 different countries. So I guess my favorite spots to vacation are the ones I haven’t seen yet. As far as places I’d like to go back and spend more time, there are too many to name. But Bali, Greece, southern France, Bryce Canyon, Yellowstone, and family in California would be on it.
This is my sixth year as a Sprucewood employee. I also oversee the Falcon Report and love it!
