Immediate Past President
Kathleen (Kathy) Young graduated from Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA with an Associate degree in Dental Hygiene. She worked in California for over 25 years. Life (and the Air Force) then took her to Texas, England and Alaska. While in Alaska, Kathy took her state boards again in order to get an Alaska dental hygiene license. It wasn’t any more fun the second time around, but she passed! Again, life changed for her when her husband was diagnosed with cancer. This brought her and her family to live in Provo, where she completed her Bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene at UVU. She continued on to get a Master’s degree in Instructional Technology and Learning Science from Utah State University. She currently is a Professor at Utah Valley University, and loves working with the students. Kathy has always been passionate about using her skills to serve others, and has taken service trips to Haiti (twice), China and the Dominican Republic. She is also passionate about serving her profession, and has done so for many years.
