(KUTV) Dr. Ruth Watkins' schedule keeps her on her toes as president of the University of Utah.

"The days are filled from before light to well after dark," she said.

She has been very busy this summer recruiting new leaders for the university, included two new senior vice presidents and a new athletic director.

"I'm very pleased that such talented people with deep experience want to join the university," she said.

Watkins also tries to squeeze in time to relax with family friends.

She is also a "very early morning person" who gets her exercise in the morning.

"That's a very sacred part of my day," she said.
