She firmly believes in, loves, and cherishes these amazing sites that belong to everyone and tell America’s story. BJ graduated from Utah Valley University with a degree in Earth Science/Environmental Management. She and her husband, Gerald, have been married 31 years and have four sons and one daughter.
