I studied Family and Consumer Sciences Education/Extension at Montana State University in Bozeman. It was while earning my B.S. degree in Education, Health and Human Development that I became very passionate about issues related to managing work and family, family finances, and health & human development. I began teaching Family and Consumer Sciences at Park High in 2005-2006 and have found great joy in teaching these life skills to teens.
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy reading, walking, gardening, camping, and most importantly, raising 5 beautiful children with my husband, Ben.
