I was born in Lansing, MI but raised in Miami, FL. I have lived in Arizona since 1988 when my family
moved here. I graduated from Mountain View High School. Education is my second career. My first
was in the medical field where I took x-rays at various hospitals around the valley. I decided to pursue
my love for teaching and earned a B.A. in Educational Studies from Ottawa University. I went on to earn
a M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. I am certified to teach K-8 and am
a certified principal K-12. Additionally, I hold an Internal Baccalaureate (IB) certificate. I have taught
grade 3, 4, 5, and 6 general curriculum, science and math. I have also taught 7th and 8th grade math and
pre-Algebra. I have been teaching since 2001 and have taught primarily at Cambridge Academy but
have also taught for Phoenix Unified and Florence Unified as well as abroad in Indonesia at a private
When I’m not teaching, I love spending my time with my two daughters or my family. I also love to read.
