I was born and raised in Raymond, Washington (Pacific County), and live in Republic today. Before I became a CIS Site Coordinator for Rural Eastern Washington, I was a proud business owner for over 20 years and then while raising two beautiful daughters I was employed at the Adna School District. Just before joining CIS I was a substitute teacher for Republic School District.

CIS is that organization we have all been looking for to provide knowledge, hope and compassion to those students and families in need.

During my free time I enjoy traveling, gardening, reading and horseback riding.
