Diamond Ranch Academy Employee Spotlight 4-14-2009

Nathan Meng is the newest addition to Diamond Ranch Academy’s therapy team. He and his family moved here from Mississippi, where he was doing an internship at the University of Southern Mississippi. Before moving to Mississippi, Nathan began his educational career at Brigham Young University/Idaho, and completed his bachelor’s degree at the Utah State University in Psychology and Business. He continued on to Seattle Pacific University to study Marriage and Family Therapy and there obtained a Masters degree in that field. He is currently pursuing a doctorate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

Nathan’s specialty is working with adolescents, as well as conducting premarital counseling and marriage counseling. He was attracted to Diamond Ranch Academy because of the chance to work with adolescents as well as the positive atmosphere and down to earth employees. Nathan is a joker, and a tease by nature, and felt he would fit in with the others.

Nathan was born and raised in Rigby, Idaho. He has been married to his wife Leah for 10 years. The two met at Utah State University where they both danced for the Ballroom dance team. They are the parents of three children, two boys, and one girl, ages 8, 5, and almost 2. Nathan enjoys the outdoors, hiking, camping, and working out in the yard. He is a real handyman, (look out Kelby, you may have some competition) and loves to garden. He is real down to earth person who works very hard at everything he does. He enjoys serving others and gives of himself freely.

Nathan and his family felt strongly that Diamond Ranch Academy was the place for him to work and associate with the good people here. They have been exposed to Hurricane, Utah for a little more than a week. We hope they enjoy all Hurricane has to offer, such as the new Panda Buffet, the Coral Cliffs Cinema, and we can’t forget Ted and Allens.
