Biography

I have been happily married for 28 years to an amazing man. We have two children. Our daughter Rachel is 22 years old and our son Sam is 16 years old. I grew up in Sheridan, Wyoming and attended the University of Wyoming where I met my husband. For graduate school, I transferred to the University of Arkansas where my husband and I attended the University and helped care for my aging grandparents. After receiving my Masters in Communication, we moved to Coeur d' Alene and this has been our home ever since.

A few of years ago my family and I returned from a one-year stint in Wuhan Hubei, China. As part of a ministry, we taught English at Wuhan University of Technology in mainland China. It was one of the most remarkable experiences of our lives. We learned a lot and really had a tremendous year.

With regards to hobbies...I love to sing, garden, play viola, read, hike, camp, travel, work on our house, care for and watch my chickens, and be with people, especially my family.

I honestly think I have the best job in the world and I am so grateful that I have the opportunity to be an instructor at a community college. It is what I consider my dream job! Not many people are as blessed to find something they love doing and I still feel this way after 25 years at NIC.
