After graduating with a bachelor’s degree in dance and theatre from Southern Utah University, Agatha felt inspired to change career paths and pursue a career in special education to work with special needs students. She received a severe profound teaching certificate from Brigham Young University and, for close to twenty years, worked in school districts in both Idaho and Utah teaching students of every age and level—elementary, junior high, and high school. After many years working as a life skills’ teacher, Agatha went on to work as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) for the Alpine School District after completing her master’s degree at Brigham Young University in special education.

She is married and has four wonderful children and four even more wonderful grandchildren.
