I graduated from Linfield College in Elementary Education and received my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Portland State University.  I began my teaching career in Lincoln City at Delake school, then in Cascade Locks before coming to Westside in 2006.
    I grew up outside of The Dalles on a wheat farm.  I now live back in The Dalles with my husband Frank, daughter Gabby and dog Foley. My two step-kids complete my family.  I enjoy spending time with family, reading, gardening and of course, kids!
