Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! This is my 10th year as the Library Media Specialist for West Ada Schools. I started off my Education career 28 years ago as a 6th/7th grade teacher before working in public and school libraries. I am originally from Rochester, Michigan and have lived in Bradenton, Florida and Dacula, Georgia. I am married and have two children; Allie (22) and Griffin (19). We have three cats; Sylvester, Winnie, and Mouse and two dogs named Ky & Norah. I love reading and discussing all things about Young Adult Literature, traveling, swimming, skiing, and being outdoors.
