 Who I Am 

Community Service

My name is Kris Udy. I was born and raised in the Bear River Valley by my parents , Jon Z. Thompson (General Contractor) and Betty Mae Allen (Registered Nurse).

After graduating from Bear River  High School and attending Utah State University I returned home to Tremonton. Married for 30 years to my handsome cowboy, Boyd. We have 5 children and 10 grandchildren.We have lived the last 25 yrs in Promontory Utah where my husband has been employed by Northrup Grumman/ATK for 48 yrs.as Ranch Manager/Water Resource Manager.


I have been a licensed Branch Lending Manager with Academy Mortgage Corp for 8 yrs. I am  licensed in both Utah and Idaho. I have been in the lending business for 18 yrs.  I love to spend my spare time; with my sweetheart, seeing the world,  in my yard, painting, reading, playing with my grandbabies, saving some poor animal or doing any one of my continual home reno projects. 

I come from pioneer stock. Driven by conviction and courage. My ancestors came to this great state with Brigham Young himself. My ancestors helped to settle northern utah. I love our valley and our way of life. I want to take my conservative principles along with that ancestral conviction and courage to serve northern utah and our great state. To protect her and keep her "The Shining Beacon on the Hill"
