I enjoy teaching Civics, Health, and Language Arts in the Day Program. My degrees are: a Masters degree from Lewis and Clark in Counseling Psychology (as well as my teaching credentials from L/C). My undergrad work was done at U of O. Go Ducks!!
I am pretty much a local grown Portlander, having graduated from Jefferson High School (go Demos!!) in North Portland. I enjoy being actively involved in my alumni activities, as well maintaining relationships with high school friends.
In my spare time I appreciate having relationships with my three adult offspring. I also spend most of my good weather time enjoying hot air ballooning. One could say it has been one of my passions since 2008.
I love, nurture, and tolerate my four elderly but little fur babies: three mini poodles and a 4 lb chiihuahua. I love animals, but am super allergic to cats. I have two birds: a Congo African Grey and a cockatiel (he is 24 years old!)
Relationships are very important to me, as well as having a sense of adventure in my life.
