After attending Eastern Washington University I received my teacher certificate in 2001. In 2007, I finished my professional certificate program at Seattle Pacific University.This year will be my 3rd year of teaching at View Ridge. In my 13 years in the Everett School District, my areas of focus have been first and second grade.In my free time I like to hike, camp, work in the yard, travel and spend time with my dogs. There are 2 labrador retrievers roaming around my house. I also really like spending time in Spokane with my niece and nephew.
