BS Elementary Education (Oregon State University)
I am from Oregon, and my husband, Scott, and I recently moved from Portland to Central Oregon to a little community called River Meadows near Bend, Oregon. We have 4 adult children named Lauren, Allie, Brian, and Emily. Lauren and Allie are both married and have blessed us with 5 grandchildren: Ensley, Camden, Quincy, Elliot, and Ethan. I love being a Grandma!
Revelation 21:5. “Behold, I make all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.” I really like this verse because it speaks to me of the depth of Jesus’ love and mercy for each of us.
My first official job was in high school working in the kitchen at Mt. St. Joseph Nursing and Extended Care Home. My first teaching job was at All Saints Grade School. I taught reading and math for grades 1-2 and also taught 1st-6th PE.
I love the outdoors, so my hobbies include hiking, biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, and bird watching. I enjoy reading and cooking too.
Bucket List Item
Tops on my “bucket list” is to walk the entire Camino de Santiago via the Northern Route.
Person I’d Like to Meet
I would like to meet Pope Francis. His messages and way of living really inspire and resonate with me.
