Hi Chief Joseph Students and Families!

This is my 2nd year working at Chief Joseph and my 4th year working in the West Ada School District as an assistant secretary.  I love working at an art school!    

I've lived in Idaho most of my life, but I enjoy living in Meridian and the Treasure Valley the best and have been here for over 15 years.  I have two wonderful daughters who are much more artistic than I am.  My husband is also creative and teaches middle school drama.   My family and I enjoy spending time in outdoor Idaho as much as possible.  


Please feel free to contact me about attendance, logging into PowerSchool or any other school issues.  If I don't know the answer to your question, I will help you find out!
