How Many Years in Education: It seems like I've been involved in education my whole life, one way or anoather, since I'm constantly learning (yeah right). Seriously I've been a guidance counselor for 10 years--and I enjoy what I do. I worked at Granite High School for 3 years and this will be my 8th year at Kearns High School. I have three younger siblings who attended Kearns High School, so my connection to this school started back in the mid 90's. My first job was at Franklin Covey--where I was a lead coordinator (another fancy word for secretary); I had to quit because my work hours interfered with my upper level evening courses for my undergraduate degree. I also worked for Continental Airlines for 10 years because I loved the travel benefits; flying to Hawaii in business first class for free is the best. The only reason I'm no longer employed there is because they reduced their staff size and my seniority date was on the chopping block.

Educational Background: Bachelor's of Science in Human Development & Family Studies from the University of Utah; Master's of Education in Educational Psychology from the University of Utah.

Hobbies/Interests: Reading--suspense/thriller novels; eating good food--especially my Mom's cooking (Tongan); watching foreign films--Bollywood, Korean, Filipino movies.

Special Counseling Assignments: AVID and MESA.

Interesting Fact(s): Born and raised in Racho Cucamonga, California in the same home until I moved to Utah. As far as I know, I'm the only one with my name. My parents created my name by combining my aunt's nickname, "Uina" with the "lu" ending of her given name, "Tuasivivalu", creating Uinalu.

Anything Else to Add? My mom was a teacher at Kearns High School when the school opened and retired from KHS thirty years later--so I spent many hours of my childhood roaming the halls, classrooms and gyms of Kearns High School.
