One of my Favorite Professional Experiences…

I have had many favorite professional experiences but some of the stand-out moments include watching my students graduate and succeed as human beings, not just as students succeeding in drafting. Forever etched in my mind is the sight of one of my high school students seated at the COT graduation with a look of pure joy and excitement. I later received a note from him titled, “Update for my favorite teacher.”  

Personal Facts

I moved to Idaho from Pennsylvania as a teen and since then have had the opportunity to live and work in several states with my time in Las Vegas being my favorite.  In my off time I own a vintage and new gift shop in Old Town Pocatello.
