I am from Colorado but have been in Hood River for the last 15 years. I live with my husband and have three college-aged children. I have my B.A. from the University of Colorado in French and secondary education but have taught social studies, language arts, reading, humanities, French, and AVID. In addition, I obtained my M.S. in counseling from Portland State University in 2011. I moved from the position of 8th grade teacher to Wy'east School Counselor in 2015. However, I have been working at here at Wy'east Middle School continuously since 1999.
