I was born and raised in Moscow, Idaho. I graduated from the University of Idaho with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Sociology. My teaching experiences include 2nd grade, 3rd grade, 6th grade, Special Education, Art and Leadership at the middle school level. I am now starting my 18th year here at Atlas in 5th grade! I am also a TBRI Practitioner, technology leader for Atlas, part of our leadership team, as well as the Sources of Strength Elementary Coordinator.

     I have two boys. Jordan is sixteen and is a junior at CHS. My youngest is Gibson, who is fourteen and in eighth grade at Canfield. My husband teaches at CHS and coaches football there.We are both passionate about teaching and helping mold the next generation. We spend our time outdoors whenever we can and love watching our boys play football, wrestle and snowboard.
