I was born in New York and moved to Arizona as a child.  I went to Thunderbird high school in Phoenix, where I played volleyball and basketball all 4 years.  I received basketball scholarships to Yavapai Junior College and California State University Sacramento and I was a center for both colleges.  I lived in Sacramento for 8 years and I taught for 5 years there as a mobile Physical Education teacher.  I was a substitute teacher for 2 years before I was certified to teach in Arizona.  I have taught in the Mesa school district for 17 years. Prior to my 5 years of teaching at Smith, I taught at Taylor and Rhodes Junior High Schools and I was the Summer School Coordinator.  At Smith, I teach 7th and 8th-grade girls and boys Physical Education.
