    Hello Students & Families!

    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I am very excited to begin this unique year. This year will be filled with many firsts and learning new ways of doing things. 



    I have lived in Mill Creek for 21 years and both my children have gone thorugh Everett Public Schools K-12. This will be my fifth year at JHS. I spent about 20 years in the building materials industry before coming to JHS. In that career, I was a manager, executive, and attorney. I also practiced law privately prior to teaching. I use my business and leagal expereince to provide context and perspective to my courses. I am still a member of the Washington Bar Association and keep up with buisness trends to provide current insights, methods, and developments to my students. I strongly believe in the mission of Career & Technical Education ("CTE") - to help prepare students for the challenges they will face in the workplace.
