I was born right here in Casa Grande and raised in Stanfield, Arizona on our family's cotton farm. I attended Stanfield Elementary School from preschool through 8th grade, then went on to Casa Grande Union High School. I received my Associates in Arts degree from Central Arizona College and completeted the teaching program at Arizona State University earning my Bachelor of Arts in Education - Go Sun Devils! I later received my Master of Education degree from Northern Arizona University.
I taught at Stanfield Elementary for 13 years before coming to Cactus Middle School in 2006. I really love the students and staff here at Cactus.
I have 3 children: Hunter, Dylan, and Jett.
