I was born and raised in Casa Grande. A graduate of Casa Grande Union, I went on to earn my bachelor’s degree from Arizona State University and my master’s from NAU. This is my 27th year of teaching. I’ve taught at Stanfield and Cactus Middle School before coming to Vista Grande 3 years ago. I enjoy hiking, spending time with my three sons, Hunter, Dylan, and Jett, and watching ASU and Pittsburgh Steelers football.
