Prior to working for YKSD, I worked for the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District in a variety of positions.  I was a Counselor, After School Program Instructor, Career Guidance Specialist, and Graduation Success Coach.

In addition, I have worked as an Accreditation Team Member evaluating the Yukon-Koyukuk School District schools for accreditation. Other work experience includes aligning CTE curriculum, spending almost ten years working with at-risk youth, and as a chemist in an environmental testing laboratory.

I love doing things with my family and enjoy being outdoors especially berry-picking, fishing, skiing, ski-jouring, running, and hiking.
