About Me Video

I grew up in the beautiful community of Lake Joy in Carnation, Washington. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Sociology from Santa Clara University with an emphasis in Drug and Alcohol Prevention among youth. After graduation, I volunteered with students at different age levels while working in the private sector until I began my studies at Seattle Pacific University, where I received my Master of Education in School Counseling.

Before joining Central Kitsap Middle School in 2016, I worked in both the Tukwila and Bremerton school districts. I came to CKMS the same year CKMS welcomed 6th graders for the first time completing it's transition to a proper middle school. I've been loving life with super cool, squirrelly middle schoolers ever since! I have a passion for finding a child's natural strengths and gifts and allowing those assets to help us navigate the areas of life where we need additional help.

I spend most of my time outside of CKMS doing trivia, hiking, crossword puzzling, hosting weekly spaghetti dinners, walking my dog (Goon), and loving life with my husband and kids Joy and Mikey, at our home in Bremerton. I love middle schoolers and will jump at any opportunity to dress up, dance around, and try to out-dork these awesome kids!

Born and raised in Kitsap County, I actually attended CKMS back when it was still a Jr. High School and graduated from CKHS in 2006. After high school, I earned my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Finance & Accounting and went to work in the nonprofit world. After a decade of crunching numbers for work and spending all my free time with people (especially volunteering with children/youth), I realized it was time for a career change! Going back to school was the best decision I ever made, and I earned my Masters of Science in School Counseling from Capella University in 2020. 

I am brand new to CKMS this year and so excited to be a Cub again 🐾 I’ve worked at the elementary, middle, and high school levels in the North Kitsap and Chimacum School Districts - but middle school has always been my favorite. Students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade are experiencing this amazing blend of drastic personal growth, crazy challenges, and really discovering/deciding who they are becoming. Being a helpful, reliable resource throughout that time is my dream job! 

My husband, daughter, and I like to spend our free time hiking, camping, sailing, or cozying up with our dogs on the couch to binge watch whatever show we’re into. I love good fiction, trying to grow new flowers and veggies each year, and learning new/interesting/weird things from all the wonderful people I get to talk to every day.
