I grew up in the Bozeman/West Yellowstone area and I am pretty sure this is where I developed my love for the local mountains and forests. This love has kept me in the Gallatin Valley for most of my life. My first teaching position was just down the road in Belgrade where I taught for 10 years. I then left the area to pursue school administration. After many adventures in Wyoming and North Central Montana, I returned to take on my current position as the Manhattan Special Education Director. My husband and I have 3 busy boys, a small flock of sheep, and 2 sassy house cats to chase and keep us busy. My family and I thoroughly enjoy the Manhattan Community and are proud to be “Tigers”.
