I grew up in Oregon where I went on to Eastern Oregon University and earned my Bachelor's degree in education. Once my husband and I were both done with obtaining our teaching degrees, we decided to have an "adventure" and moved to the North Slope of Alaska, where we taught in the village of Wainwright. We lived and taught in Wainwright for 4 years, and during that time fell in love with Alaska, and the Mat-Su valley after visiting here. We decided to move here, bought a house, and I started teaching in the MSBSD, where I have been ever since.
