I have been teaching most of my career at Poulsbo Middle School. I love the staff and students at PMS and look forward to coming to work every day!   I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to demonstrate my love for fitness, both in my teaching and my life style choices. I played basketball in college and after a few years of teaching,  I left public education and spent a few years coaching Women's basketball at Central Washington University.  I also spent 6 summers as a Wildland firefighter on a Helicopter crew out of Ellensburg, Washington.  I love being outdoors: walking, jogging, swimming, and hiking with my kids, husband and dog.
