In addition, Dr. Bouquet has 27 years of experience precepting students in Missouri and Colorado, including students from RVU.

In his spare time, he enjoys creating acrylic and watercolor paintings, as well as playing tennis, skiing and hiking. Dr. Bouquet has been married for 29 years to Britta, a writer, and has one son, Julien, a middle school teacher.
