Profile Updated: May 6, 2020
Residing In: Farmington, UT USA
Spouse/Partner: Randy Townsend
Occupation: Weber State faculty, author, training seminars, choreographer
Children: Ryan, Jodi, Shane, David (deceased), Brett, Emmanuel Martinez-Acosta (our new adopted son) So with More…my 5 children, Randy's 4 children and now Manni, we are the parents of 10 and grandparents of 26! Crazy.

What have I been up to since 1970? An incredible journey as I'm sure you all have. How fast the time has gone and how blessed I feel. My biggest joy is my family. Allen Webb and I raised 4 beautiful children in Morgan and Fruit Heights. I'm now married to Randy Townsend (not the one from Viewmont but the Randy Townsend from Bountiful High). I've traveled to 31 countries, and I've had several careers. I've choreographed stadium shows- NFL halftimes, Fiesta and Orange Bowls and Stadium of Fire for 18 years. I was one of the five who choreographed the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics with Kenny Ortega and won an Emmy Award. I'm adjunct faculty at Weber State and at Roy High for 21 years, and I do training seminars and authored 2 books.

School Story:

Favorite school memory: the first year of the Viewmont Vykettes and our matching brunette wigs. I also remember my slip falling down during the Jr. Prom dance. Remember the Home Ec. teacher Ms. Matern? She's my next door neighbor now. (I should have been nicer to her in high school).

I attended Bob's funeral and I was reminded he was one of VHS great ones. He contributed much and blessed many lives. We are better for having known you Bob. Thank you for your kindness. God bless your beautiful family.

Hi Kathy! How nice to hear from you! I'm remember being your room mate at Weber State and how smart you were. I had to study so hard for the good grades and you eased in with great grades. Catch me up on your life. It's been a long time.
