My objective is to work for a community or university to not only facilitate learning but to help grow the business department.  I bring my professional, hardworking, and ethical behavior to all that I do. 


My journey started by just wanting a job that would work with family life and that began by working at a bank part time.  After eighteen wonderful years working in the banking industry, wearing many different hats in that career,  my life changed course.  I went back to school to get my teaching degree in business education and three years later I graduated and began teaching at our community college and a year after that began teaching in the business department at Spring Creek High School.  I am not sure where my life will turn next but I have learned that I must be open to changes and with that mindset there is nothing I can't do.
