Covey, Colleen (Brown)

I look forward to seeing my Provo High School classmates at the reunion! I have thoroughly enjoyed your pictures and reading up on your lives. What a great group! My life since high school has been wonderful. I attended BYU and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in English. While there I met my husband, Matthew Brown. He is my best friend and love of my life.

Shortly after we were married, we lived and studied in Jerusalem for a summer, then backpacked our way through Europe. This experience planted a traveling bug in both of us and we make efforts as often as we can to explore various parts of the world. After we graduated, Matt went to medical school at the University of Utah while I attended graduate school at BYU and received a master’s degree in English, with an emphasis in American Literature. I taught freshman English at BYU until we started our family. We have six beautiful children—Erika, Matthew, Mckenna, Caleb, Spencer, and Brooklyn—from ages 15 to two years old. I adore them and believe they are what life is all about.

We now live in Cedar Hills. Matt practices family medicine for Intermountain Health Care and I am a busy mom. My days are filled with soccer games, piano recitals, trips to the Dinosaur Museum, and assisting kids with homework (I’m loving the summer break). I occasionally teach Journal and Family History classes at BYU Education Week and have enjoyed this immensely. Free time is scarce, but when I have some I like running with Matt, eating Green Chile Chicken Salads at Bajio, reading the classics, 4-wheeling with my kids, and working on writing and editing projects. I look forward to catching up with you all and hope to see you at the reunion.
