Degrees and Certifications:
I was born in Washington, moved as a child to Nevada. I graduated from high school in Nevada. I moved back to Washington in the early 80's and have been here for 35+ years.
I went to Grays Harbor college, Evergreen State College, and was certified through IBBCES as an Autism Specialist. I am a member of PHI Theta Kappa. I have worked with children with special needs and the life skills class at North Beach as a Special Education Paraprofessional/Program facilitator for the past 11 years.
My interests are learning as much as possible about special needs so I can help students and families. Autism has affected my family and has been a driving force in what I do today. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, gardening and DIY projects.
I love raising our pugs and they make me smile everyday.
