Meet Our Board
Melissa Christensen brings more than 12 years of personal experience dealing with special needs kids to the Utah Kids Foundation. She and her husband Scott have one child that is Autistic and 1 child that has been diagnosed with Microcephaly early in his life, but since has been diagnosed with many other things. They’ve spent many hours in therapy, doctors’ offices and hospitals dealing with the things that plague their children. They’ve become experts in dealing with many things…from feeding tubes, to central lines, doctors, therapy and yes even poop. : ) Melissa looks forward to being able to share what she has learned in order to help other families and make their lives easier.
Hello, my name is Molly Barrington and I live in American Fork. I grew up with three brothers. Two of them had Lowe Syndrome which caused very severe disabilities and complex medical issues. My husband, Dave, and I have one son who is our pride and joy. Our Jonny has Lowe syndrome also. I have worked with the special needs community in one form or another, my entire life. I have also worked professionally as a medical assistant.
I really enjoy working with Utah Kids Foundation because of the support that we are able to give each other. Everyone needs to be heard and understood and this is a place where that can happen.
My mother taught me that everyone deserves to be treated with respect and kindness and I try to live my life that way.
Get in touch. Get Involved.
