I have a number of interests and hobbies. I like to do all sorts of arts and crafts. My latest obsession is refurbishing the old into the new. I bring life back into old furniture and make it new again. I like to paint and do some home decorating. You will see me at art and craft fairs and shows looking for new ideas.

I love all kinds of pets, except maybe reptiles (because I don't know any), but I do not currently own any pets. I am a supporter of no-kill animal shelters and support laws against animal cruelty. I feel it is important to have your pets spayed and/or neutered so that animal populations are not out of control.

I am an advocate for children. I believe that all children should be brought up in a safe and nurturing environment. I believe they all have the right to live free, grow, and nurture their talents, and I hope that I play a part in that as an educator.

I taught at Montview Elementary for 16 years and I transferred to ASFL in 2018.
