Biography

I graduated from Hawaii Pacific University in Honolulu, Hawaii.  I have been a teacher at Amos Hiatt Middle School for 9 years and volleyball coach for 7 years.  I have one son and am expecting a 2nd child in April 2013.  I enjoy spending time outdoors, hunting, fishing, and having fun with my family.  I am also the Iowa Director and Transport Coordinator for a midwest dog rescue that saves the lives of countless hunting dogs (German Shortharied Pointers and English Pointers).  My favorite thing about Hiatt is the students.  They make it fun to come to work every day!!!!
