I was born and raised near New Orleans. I am forever indebted to my mother who single handedly raised six kids. After graduating from the University of Louisiana, Lafayette, (Geaux Cajuns!) in 1985, I moved to California. This is where I met my husband, and we moved to Truckee in 1987.

I left the corporate world of insurance to attend Sierra Nevada College in Incline to obtain my teaching credential. Since 1999, I've taught first and second grades, Language Arts, Social Studies and Science in 6th grade, Math and Science in 7th grade and, in 2014, I made a very exciting career change when I moved to 8th grade to teach Language Arts and Social Studies. My first year was 2014-2015. This is where I plan to stay!

Both of my daughters went through the Truckee school system, and graduated from Truckee High. My oldest attended College of the Siskiyous Community College in Weed, California then transferred to Cal State Maritime in Vallejo. She graduated in 2012. My younger daughter attended Monterey Peninsula Community College and then transferred to the University of Nevada, Reno and graduated in December 2014.

We were a very busy family with my husband coaching, and my daughters playing multiple sports. The juggle continued when they played college sports. Today, our home is a relatively, quiet, empty-nested place!
