Teaching is a second career for me and I love it! I worked as a Registered Dietitian for 20 years prior to pursuing my teaching credential. This is my twentieth year as an elementary teacher for TTUSD and the seventeenth year in kindergarten. I have also taught high school and college level home economics and nutrition classes. I have lived in Tahoe for 29 years and have two sons that attended Tahoe Lake. I am a member of the Tahoe Truckee Nutrition Coalition and help promote health and wellness in our student population. My free time is spent hiking, reading, cooking and enjoying Tahoe!
