Iowa born, Iowa raised!  Made the trip to Arizona after graduating in 1987 from the University of Northern Iowa.  I began my MPS teaching career working with the severely mentally disabled population, while I earned my Master's Degree from NAU.  I have been in my current teaching position with the moderately intellectually disabled students for the past nineteen years.This is my 29th year at Westwood and I have the best students in the world!

Personally, I enjoy being a mom to my amazing 18 year old son, Riley and my awesome 17 year old daughter, Mackenzie. They both attend Red Mountain High School. I have two great stepchildren:  Taylor, who is 27 years old, and Kelcie, who is 25 years old. We also have an adorable granddaughter, Haven.   My wonderful husband, Ross, is also a teacher for Mesa Public Schools.  He teaches Science and coaches at Red Mountain High School.  I am the lone Westwood Warrior at my house.  Go Warriors!!!!
