I was born in Reno, Nevada while my dad was serving in the Navy. At less than a year old, I moved with my parents to Nampa, Idaho. I lived on the family farm until we moved to Kuna when I was 5 years old. I attended and graduated from Kuna schools in 1989. While attending NNC for a degree in elementary education, I participated on the track and basketball teams. I graduated college in 1993 and took my first teaching position at Ross Elementary teaching 6th grade. I then relocated to Melba and taught there from 1994-2016. From 2016-2022, I worked as an online teacher. This is my second year teaching Math at Falcon Ridge Charter and I truly love it here!

My interests are traveling with my family. I also enjoy cooking, baking, hospitality, attending church and being involved in many activities there. I’m part of a group of women called the Summit Sisters and we hike together as often as possible. In 2019, I was able to climb to the highest peak in Idaho, Mt Borah! I also enjoy home projects and I’m always updating walls and rooms. Working on puzzles is one of my hobbies during the winter months. During the school months, I love coaching XC, basketball as well as track and field.

I have 4 children. My son Jonathon lives and works in Boise. My oldest daughter, Anna lives with her husband in Emmett. My middle daughter, Allison, lives in Kauai with her husband and my grandson. Our youngest son, Andrew, still lives at home and works as a wildland firefighter. My husband is currently working on a Marine Corps base in Hawaii. He is back and forth between there and Idaho as he can work his job remotely at times.

I am passionate about teaching math and hope that I can help all students learn to enjoy it as their skills and confidence build.
