I moved to Cascade when I was 9. I was born in Burns, Oregon. I graduated high school from Cascade High in 2005 and after that I volunteered around the world for a year including: clean up after Hurricane Katrina, working in Mexico, and teaching English in Kanpur, India. I also spent a few months traveling around and exploring Thailand, Canada, and Taiwan. The following fall I went to Boise State where I was lucky enough to work for AmeriCorps and teach literacy at Trail Wind Elementary School. I was invited to be a student teacher there and after graduation my husband was offered a job at Oregon Department of Forestry on the beautiful Oregon coast. I also received a job there and taught first grade for three years. While teaching first grade I got my master’s degree from Arizona State University in educational leadership. At the end of my third year as a first grade teacher there was an opportunity to teach at a school closer to where we lived so I transferred schools within my same district. I moved to Toledo Elementary School and taught second grade and the following year I became assistant principal. The next year my husband received a job opportunity in McCall and we were able to move back to this beautiful community. My favorite things to do are travel, read, write, hike, play volleyball, run, paddle board, surf (though never very well), and really anything outdoors. Travel is definitely one of my most favorite past times, two years ago we traveled to New Zealand and I finally got to realize a life long dream of going to Hobbiton. As a huge and very nerdy Lord of the Rings fan this was an amazing trip and is one my most favorite memories.
