About Me

I have two wonderful boys. Zachary graduated from Nothwestern College in Iowa and is currently waiting to attend medical school next summer.  He and Julia got married December of 2020.  Jacob graduated from the Pima Fire Academy.  He is currently working as a volunteer fire fighter in Sonoita AZ and is also a wildland fire fighter. He has worked fighting fires in California and Oregon.

I grew up in Kansas City and return to visit my family as often as possible.  Travel is a passion of mine and I try to schedule a trip each summer.  I attended the University of Kansas for my bachelors degree and taught 7 years before raising my boys.  Then I attended the University of Arizona, where I received a mastor's degree in Speical Education in 2014.
