I was born in Montana and grew up in an Air Force family. I was fortunate to get to live in several states and countries as a child. I graduated from Mtn, Home High School, attending the University of Montana Western, and completed my degree at Boise State University. My husband and I both work for the Mtn. Home School District. I initially taught Special Education at West Elementary before becoming a Second Grade teacher at West. I have four children, Morgan, Hunter, Cooper, and Addison; all of them have attended school in Mtn. Home. In my free time, I enjoying spending time with my family and watching my children at their sporting events. We love watching football as a family and are Tampa Bay Buccaneer fans.
