Welcome to CTE Health Occupations! I am currently in my 5th year of teaching in Melba and my 16th year of teaching overall. The Health Occupations career track consists of the following courses: Health Occupations, Medical Terminology, Sports Medicine 1&2, CNA, Pharmacy Technician and EMT. My hope is that students taking my courses, will find a passion in a particular healthcare field and gain as much knowledge and clinical experience as possible while at Melba High School.
On a personal note, I was born and raised in Greenleaf, Idaho and after graduating from Homedale High School, I graduated from Whitworth College in Spokane, Washington with a B.A. in Sports Medicine as well as a B.A. in Secondary Education with Biology, Health and PE Endorsements. I am a certified athletic trainer and I enjoy working with the athletes here at Melba. My husband also teaches and coaches in Melba and we have three wonderful daughters, Emma, Kate and Kendall. They are extremely active and we enjoy watching them compete in their various sports and activities.
When not at school, our family enjoys motorcycle riding, boating, camping, traveling and rooting on our favorite college basketball team, the Gonzaga Bulldogs! Our true favorite team is the Melba Mustangs! Everyday is a great day to be a Mustang!
