I was born in Wenatchee and raised in Cashmere as the youngest of 12 children. Growing up, enjoyed the support of amazing family and friends, as well as the natural beauty of this amazing place we call home. I graduated from Cashmere High School in 2000 and followed the path many in my family had before me and enlisted in the US Air Force.
I served for 11 years and gained a wealth of experience and leadership skills in that time. My service included two tours in Iraq where I experienced responsibility for the lives of others quite literally. My actions and decisions had a direct bearing on the welfare of those with whom I served.
My service took me to MacDill AFB in Florida, as well as Iraq, Spangdahlem AFB Germany, Moron AFB Spain, Aviano AFB Italy and finally Scott AFB in Illinois. It was in Germany that I met my husband of 16 years and in Italy where we would have our two boys who are now students in the Wenatchee School District.
Wenatchee has been our home since 2011 and we love raising our kids here. We have a vested interest in their education and seek to support them in their many aspirations as well as their education.
