Denise Poulsen

I am married to my eternal companion Reese. As a blended family we have 5 daughters (all only 1 year apart), 5 sons-in-laws, 19 grandchildren and 39 foster sons.

I am a retired Family Therapist, foster mom for 39 teenage sons, dog trainer and breeder. I have trained adults to use computer programs for the government on the east and south coast of USA. I created computer training manuals and implemented computer training programs for adults. I taught math, computers and psychology at both high school and college levels. Due to some medical limitations, I have forgotten most of what I have studied and taught. I believe in the use it or lose it theory, so I am once again learning something new with the Wiki program.

I graduated from Utah State University magna cum laude in mathematics, computer programming, psychology, and secondary teaching. I taught school to put myself through graduate school where I earned a Master Degree in Family Therapy from St. Martins College, Lacey, Washington.

I am using my behavior modification on dogs, instead of all of my children and grandchildren.

I love to braid wool rugs, braid kumihimo necklaces, weave household rugs and have started learning how to do Inkle braids.

I play the piano and organ at church. I have played since I was 5 years old, many, many moons ago.

I have taught all of the primary classes, most of the Sunday school classes, and many Relief Society classes. I have played piano in all. I have been Primary president. Now, my husband and I love to go to the temple and worship the Lord there.
