Personal:  I am a West Coast girl, born in the Northwest and moved down the California coastline throughout my childhood into early adulthood. I married my husband in 2007 and we decided to relocate back to the Northwest in 2008. I love the seasons here and all the beautiful green scenery. I am a mommy of two wonderful children whom have grown and thrived by attending our programs. I am so proud to be a part of this excellent school community.
