I was born and raised in Utah. I went to Brighton High School and graduated from BYU in finance. I owned several restaurants in Salt Lake and is currently a general contractor doing LDS church remodels. I am the father of six children and six grandchildren and am happily married to Shirell Iverson. We have a son who is 20 that has PWS named Samuel. He is wonderful (most of the time). Samuel is nonverbal (he never talks back) and is not potty trained. We love Samuel dearly and worry about his future constantly. We support this wonderful PWS organization and especially the best president – Lisa Thornton.
