Then after two years they moved again to Teton Idaho where they settled permanently. Chalyce was joined by a brother, Troy, two sisters, Sari and Jayna, and eventually her youngest brother Derek.

Chalyce loved the out of doors and helping on the family farm. Moving pipe with her siblings and cousins, raising orphan calves, riding horses and bicycles, weeding in the garden, and fall harvest were some of here favorite childhood memories.

Chalyce attended Kindergarten at Teton Elementary and then grades 1 – 12 at Sugar Salem, graduating in 1995 with honors. She studied at Ricks College for one year then transferred to Boise State University where she finished her Bachelors degree in Biology in 2000.
