Carolyn Phippen


Phippen has made a name for herself in recent years working with some of the state’s most prominent conservatives. From 2018-2021, she served as regional director and government affairs adviser to Sen. Mike Lee and prior to that she worked as the chief of communications for former Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes.

Phippen says she is running to demonstrate how principled conservatism can put the country on the right track when it transcends partisan name-calling and abides by the time-tested principles of the U.S. Constitution.

Phippen served as a young missionary in Czechoslovakia for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and more recently has served as a member of numerous boards and nonprofit organizations focused on helping underprivileged youth in Utah.
