John Iler – Frankfurt, Germany

John Iler was raised in a southern Utah community that was surrounded first by alfalfa, and then by wilderness. He served a two year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in North Carolina, after which he graduated from Southern Utah University with a major in English literature and a minor in philosophy. He has held nearly a dozen volunteer and community positions including working as a tutor with kids and students from second grade to graduate students, and working with athletes aged two to twenty years as a swim coach and instructor. Before beginning law school, he interned in the United States Senate for Senator Harry Reid, and he interned at a tech university in Salzburg, Austria. Some of his life goals are: improving his German, going on a three-week cross country biking adventure, and doing sunrise yoga on the Mediterranean coast in Greece.
