My husband, Michael, is a retired college strength and conditioning football coach. He last coached at The University of Montana. He now runs his own strength and conditioning business here in Kalispell called Montana Sport-Strength. We have furry children including two cats, a dog, and two horses.
I played field hockey at Syracuse University on a full athletic scholarship albeit a looong time ago ?. I coached the Girls Three Time State Lacrosse Class A Champions of New York State. I lived in and traveled throughout India while completing my graduate research in Environmental Communications.
I have taught science in New York as well as Connecticut. I retired from CT and went back to school to become a veterinary technician. As much as I enjoyed working with animals, I missed teaching.
At the ocean. As much as I love the mountains and lakes of Montana, I miss my roots--- the ocean. Every once and a while I need an “ocean fix” so I can listen, smell, and swim in the salty water along some coastline. Plus I love to feast on fresh sea food, especially gulping down raw clams and oysters!
Riding my horses in the back country, hiking, skiing--mostly cross country, mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, dancing, reading, gardening, and cooking while watching football on TV.
I love the excitement of working with teenagers! Every day is a fun challenge watching them learn, grow, and develop into mature young adults.
