I have taught for 16 years in this wonderful school district at Pine Grove & Westside Elementary. Westside is a great school and I love being a part of this community.
I was born and raised in Hood River and grew up on a pear and apple orchard. I currently live in a cherry orchard which is operated in part by my husband. Hood River couldn't keep me away.
At home I live with my husband, Bob, our daughter, Kristin, and our son, Justin. We also have a loving yellow lab, Dax.
I attended 2 colleges over 5 years. I received my bachelor's from Oregon State University and my Master's from Concordia University. I minored in Spanish and lived in Spain for 4 months during my schooling while also visiting Mexico.
My favorite things are milk-chocolate, Dutch Bro's coffee, reading a good book, spending time with my family and friends and relaxing at the beach.
