Alisa Ellis and her husband have lived in the beautiful Heber valley for the last 14 years with their seven children.
Alisa was raised in Texas. She skipped her senior year of high school and began attending BYU at barely 17. She graduated from BYU with a BS in Science with an emphasis in Human Development. She values alternative/individual education plans because of this important decision in her life.
Alisa and her husband have been passionate about the quality of education their children receive as they’ve raised their children.
Alisa has been an activist in education for the last five years. She has traveled the state speaking about education policy. She also served on the state of Utah’s science review committee.
Alisa sometimes gets asked what qualifies her to speak about education policy. Her answer is always emphatically, “Because I’m a mom to seven kids who cares about their education.” She believes it is her responsibility to raise, educate and guide her children. Alisa firmly believes, as the Utah Constitution states, “A student’s parent or guardian is the primary person responsible for the education of the student, and the state is in a secondary and supportive role to the parent or guardian. “
She is active in the community, active in her faith and recently served as a Service Project Leader for BYU’s Women’s Conference.
