  • Tell us about your family.

    I have a younger brother and an older sister who are 14 years apart. My sister lives in Missoula/Palm Springs and my brother lives in Whitefish. My mom and Ken live in Whitefish. I have one nephew who makes me laugh and smile and reminds me how enjoy life to the fullest.

  • Share something about yourself that might surprise people.

    Most people think of me as cerebral because I teach science, but in high school I was an athlete and tradesman. As an athlete, I participated in basketball, cross-country, indoor and outdoor track, volleyball and softball in the summer. I was privileged to run the 2-mile in the Meet of Champions in Montana. My favorite class in high school was building trades where we went off-site two periods to build a garage (it still stands today).

  • Briefly describe your work experience.

    I retired from Utah after teaching science (Biology, Chemistry, Geology, and Biotechnology) 19 years and being an assistant principal for 2 years in an elementary school and 7 years at a high school.

  • If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be?

    I would love to go to Alaska to see the beautiful scenery and experience the wildlife and Belize to see the rainforest.

  • What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

    I love taking photographs and being out in nature.

  • What draws you most to this type of work?

    I love watching the light bulbs come on as student see the relevance and importance of learning.
