Employed at Woods Charter School since June 2002

Director of Personnel and Special Services

"Special Services" include:  Co-Cordinator of the Guest Teacher Program, Director of School Safety, Director of Transportation and

Woods Summer Wonders Camp Director

Born in Seattle, Washington.  B.A. in Psychology from the Unversity of Washington and J.D. Cum Laude from the University of Puget Sound.

I work in education because it's a lot more fun than being a lawyer, and I feel like I actually do some good every now and again.

When I'm not at work I try to get in a little yoga and bike riding.

It might surprise you to know that I used to climb mountains and once parachuted out of an airplane

(both of which it turns out were great preparation for working at Woods Charter School -- who knew?)!

Summit of Mount St. Helens before its bit erruption in 1980

Daybreak on the summit of Mount St. Helens after an all-night climb.  That's Mount Hood in the background.  

I climbed it with two of my fav college professors (math & sociology).  Won't ever forget that experience!
