Karen and Joey Duckworth
Housing Staff

Karen and Joey were both born and raised in Utah. Joey attended school at Kearns High School and graduating served a two year mission for his church in Spain. Karen attended school at Cyprus High school and then went on to get an Associates Degree in Science from SLCC. They met in the LDS singles ward. Joey was the handsome "older" man in a suit on the front row and Karen was the weird one with big glasses. But they found they had lots in common like their love of music and sports. After that first kiss they were hooked and fell in love fast. They met in June, engaged in July and married in August. When you know you know. They have now been married going on 8 years and are living happily ever in Saratoga Springs. They have three wonderful kids with one more expected in September 2019.

Joey just started going to school at WGU to better himself and works hard to support his family. Joey has worked for his company going on 16 years and is very dedicated. For fun he loves to play basketball and softball. He won the 3 point shooter challenge in High school and has turned that love of basketball into starting a new business as well. For down time he loves watching BYU or the JAZZ and eating cartons of Ice cream.

Karen loves being a stay at home mom. She is excited for the opportunity to be that for more children. For fun Karen likes to play the piano and is hopeful to start teaching students piano soon. Karen also works out her creativity with a camera, as a side business she does photography. For down time she loves a bubble bath and a good book.

Together they've played coed softball, racquetball, basketball and are both really competitive. They both sing in the church choir and love to perform. They love to host dinner and game nights with friends or simply go to the movies with the kids. Whatever it is they are doing they just want to be doing it together!
