I was born and raised in Arizona. I come from a large family with 6 brothers, 1 sister and many nephews and nieces. I enjoy playing sports and the peacefulness of the outdoors. I am the proud mother of eight high-spirited children, 5 boys and 3 girls. My husband and I moved our family to Washington in September of 2018. I love spending all my time with them. I have worked with children in many different settings. I worked as a teacher’s aide in a second grade classroom. I taught PE for K-8th grades. I was a 4-H leader. I love watching children as they grow and develop their own personality and seeing the changes in them as they learn new life skills.
