My name is Joy Bogar. I work in Salt Lake City, UT in the Data Quality / Patron Services Department. I am on the Wiki Team, welcoming new members and thanking them for their contribution and encouraging them to continue contributing. I also am responsible for changing the Featured Articles on the Main page of the Wiki and archiving the Featured Articles that are taken down. I love uploading images to articles on the Wiki and visually welcoming searches to click on that article.
I have been with the Wiki Team since May of 2011 as a part-time Missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, assigned to the Family and Church History department / FamilySearch Wiki .
As far as education, I have a B.S. Degree from BYU, Provo, UT and a Masters Degree from Idaho State University, Pocatello, ID. I have taught Physical Education, I was a Job Developer and Career Counselor for the Adult Community - as well as teaching business classes - the last 15 years of my teaching career—all in Northern California. I have also managed a restaurant with more than 70 employees - gaining much respect for excellent-superior customer service and kindness.
My background in teaching and sales has enhanced my love for people from all over the world. Showing kindness and not judging others has been invaluable to me in developing a love for the people on this earth. Although I don’t have a background in ancestral research, I love helping and assisting anyone who needs help. If I don’t know the answer – I’ll find someone who can assist in answering your questions.
Remember there are no dumb questions.
