I earned my B.A at Michigan State University (Go Green!), and my M.A. at the University of Phoenix. I have taught Kindergarten, 3rd Grade, and 1st Grade. My mother was a Middle School Science teacher for 33 years. Before I entered Education, I worked in Marketing, Advertising, and Media Production for almost 20 years with two different companies.
My husband, myself, and our two sons have lived in California, Washington, and Arizona. Both of my sons attended Chaparral Elementary and Higley High School. We all enjoy going to the gym and hiking. We have been fortunate enough to travel to Ireland, Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. Someday we'd like to hike Mount Fuji in Japan.
