Professional Bio

I grew up in Butte, Montana, and graduated from Montana State University in Bozeman.  After graduation, I wanted to work with Dr. Penny Patterson at the Gorilla Institute in San Francisco.  However, after  I received my Master's of Education, my husband and I moved to Anchorage, Alaska.  I was employed with the Anchorage School District  until we returned to Montana in 1998.
