I was born...a baby 100_0176.jpg...(If you don't get the reference, not so funny), but seriously, I was very fortunate to have two loving parents who are still married today and have been a huge part of my life. I have a twin brother and a younger sister who both still live close and we see each other often. I have a son who graduated college and is a lieutenant in the Marine Corps and twin daughters who are juniors in high school and very active in sports. While owning a successful construction company for 10 years, I was able to start college and receive my associates degree from RCC and upon selling the business in 2006 I pursued my BS in Psychology from the University of Phoenix and graduated last spring. I have coached wrestling for 12 years and girl's soccer for 5 years and the experience has convinced me I want to be in the classroom. Although working as a custodian at the high school isn't very glorious, I am reminded daily why I got into education...to help inspire young people to live the lives they deserve and to help them become successful members of society. We spend most of our time with sports, but when we get the chance the family enjoys riding at the dunes, camping at the lake, hiking, fishing and just spending time together.Photoshop_Class_170.jpg
