I always knew growing up that I wanted to do something that was helping people, I had the opportunity of coaching my daughter in sports for many years, I realized I have a passion for helping kids. I loved the excitement they got when we won or they learned something new. It is like that with Student Services, when they have their first day with their work experience, or when the get hired on permanently. Nothing beats that look. I have been in Student Services for the last three years, and with DOR for almost eight in August. I feel I have found where I am supposed to be…

I was born and raised in Redding, Ca. I have been married for 21 years, have two children a daughter-in-law, and two grandchildren. If I am not at work you will find me at my daughters college soccer games, track meets or spending time with my family, friends and my dogs. You will find us outdoors hiking, camping, mountain biking, or at the gym (it really is the best stress releaser)! I am blessed to live in a area where I can be adventures all year long.
