I was born in Olympia, WA and have been teaching for over eighteen years. I attended Tumwater High School, Western Washington University, and received my Master's Degree through Lesley University. I taught in the Shelton area for three years and this is my fifteenth year at Meadows Elementary. I love working at Meadows, and am excited to continue coaching in this amazing building this year! I get to work with all students and teachers at Meadows in the area of English Language Arts, so you'll see me all over the building!
