A Layton woman will take a spin on "Wheel of Fortune" later this week. 

Katie Poland will appear on Thursday's episode of the game show, which airs weeknights at 6 p.m. on KJZZ. 

Poland is speech therapist who co-owns her own business and is an alum of Brigham Young University and the University of Utah. She and her husband, Jason, have three children together, according to a press release from "Wheel of Fortune."

To become a contestant, Poland applied on WheelofFortune.com and auditioned for the show in Salt Lake City. She has been watching the show since was "a little girl and now watches every night with her kids," the press release said.
