Battle Ground High School (many years ago)

Washington State University (Go Cougs!!)     Bachelors Degree in Hotel and Restaurant Administration

Central Washington University    Masters Degree in Family and Consumer Science Education


After graduating from WSU I became an Assistant, and then General Manager at Chili's Restaurant.  My husband and I then started our family, and I began working as an assistant in the Culinary Program at Fort Vancouver High School.  From there I moved to BGHS to teach Family and Consumer Science.

My husband and I have two daughters (10 and 8) and live in Vancouver, WA.  All of our family is in the BG/Vancouver area, and I am happy to be able to work in the city where I grew up.

My Message

I absolutely LOVE teaching.  I believe that my job at BGHS is to encourage students to think for themselves.  All of the classes that I teach are hands on, and allow each student to learn skills that will help them in the future.
