I was born and raised in Napa, California. In Kindergarten, I knew that I wanted to be a Teacher! However, it took me a while to finally realize my dream. I went back to college after 25 years and earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree and Masters of Education. My parents tell me that out of all their children, I am the one with the most perseverance. 

I am the oldest of five children. I have two brothers and two sisters. 

Currently, I live in LaFayette, Georgia with my husband and son. Our other son and his wife live in Michigan. Being a Wife and Mom is the best! I love my family very much and we enjoy many good times together.

I am active in my church family, teaching bible classes, and working in our Dial-A-Bible Message program. My love and faith in God & Jesus is what defines me and keeps me going.

Being able to teach children has been my dream job and I am so thankful to be here at "OKES" working with such a professional group of dedicated Educators!
