Rebecca was born in 1971 in Salt Lake City. Throughout her childhood she lived in Utah, Arizona and Montana. She graduated from Murray High School in 1989 and moved with her family to Virginia, then to Idaho, and finally back to Utah where she currently resides.
Rebecca has been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints since she was a child. She married her husband Mike in in the Jordan River Temple in 2000 and they are raising their three children; 16 year old twins, Connor and Heather, and 12 year old Shawn.
Rebecca has always loved music and started playing the piano at age 4. This led to her decision to pursue a Bachelor of Music at the University of Utah and continue on with some graduate work as well. She taught piano lessons for many years, but now she just enjoys playing the piano for herself and her family.
In 2012 Rebecca, along with her husband and children, started taking Kenpo Karate lessons and in 2018 she earned her black belt. She helped her husband open a dojo (Black Dragon Kenpo Karate) in their basement where they teach kids and adults the art of Kenpo and the skills of self defense. That same year Rebecca joined Paparazzi Jewelry and Accessories and has built a budding business by selling amazing $5 jewelry on her website (www.pinkdragonjewels.com) and doing Facebook and YouTube live parties.
Rebecca absolutely adores the Star Wars universe and she sees a parallel to life in the stories. Some of the life lessons she’s learned from Star Wars are you must follow your own path, you should keep your promises, anger and fear lead to evil, you should pass on what you’ve learned, and no matter how deeply you fall into darkness there’s always hope for redemption.
