I was born and raised in Lynden, Washington. I graduated from Western Washington University in 2002 with a degree in Elementary and Special Education. I taught 3rd grade for one year before my husband and I moved to Idaho in 2003. I have been teaching Kindergarten for over 10 years now! I have two children Hope and Tyce who both attended West Elementary. In my free time I love golfing and camping with my family and friends. I enjoy watching football and cheer for Seahawks and Boise State!
