This is my 25th year to teach at WHS. I am certified in 6 areas: Health, Physical Education, Business Administration, Math 4-8, Math 6-12, and ESL. I currently teach Algebra I and am an assistant coach in volleyball and track. I have coached 8 of my years at WHS in a variety of sports including: Head volleyball, assistant volleyball, assistant basketball, Head softball, and assistant track. 

I have been married for 30 years in December and have two children who are in college.  When I wasn't coaching at WHS, I was supporting my children who were active in sports. It has been an exciting experience to be involved with my children in sports and to be a coach myself.

My favorite quote is: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
