About

LISA PERKES

Here is a small taste of my life. I was born and raised in a small town in Southern Utah. I was practically raised in an airplane with my dad as the pilot. I will try any sport. I will get out there and do it in front of anyone, even when I am not very good at it. Soccer is one of my great passions. Another passion is music. I truly enjoy playing the piano, saxophone, and singing. Reading a good book on a rainy day is also high on my list. I enjoy doing a lot of things and work to do them as best as I can.

 

I am a true Aggie and graduate of Utah State University, spring of 2013. I majored in Public Relations and minored in Multimedia while learning graphic design and web development. I learned to truly love web development while working full time as a web developer at the USU Research Foundation. I was in the Air Force Reserves for two years and was given a honorable medical discharge when I broke my foot. I was devastated but picked myself back up and found a new passion in web development. I served as a volunteer missionary in the California, San Diego Mission and as a tour guide at the Mormon Battalion Historic Site. It taught me how to look beyond myself and serve those around me. I am a wife and a mother. I left my job at USU Research Foundation so I could spend more time with my kids and work from home. I try to have great sense of humor and a good work ethic. Life is not always the easiest but I love every second.
