I am thrilled to be part of the wonderful team of educators at Cotton Creek Elementary! This is my second year in Adams 12 in the role of School Psychologist and my 16th year in education. I earned my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at California State University, Northridge and my Education Specialist Degree in School Psychology at Northern Arizona University. I taught elementary grades K-6 for 12 years in California and Arizona and at-risk college freshmen for 3 years while completing my graduate degree in Arizona. I have been married to my best friend since 1985 and together we have raised 2 daughters and 2 sons, one with a developmental/mental health disability. We live in the mountains where we can enjoy our many animals which include horses, chickens and cats. In our spare time, we love to hike, snowboard and spend time with friends and family.
