I was born in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Canada and by the time I started first grade, I had lived in Winnipeg, MB, Summerside, Prince Edward Island (just down the road from Anne of Green Gables), Moncton, New Brunswick, and Langley, British Columbia. I spent junior high in Kamloops, BC and graduated from high school in Kelowna, BC. I have also lived in Vancouver and Victoria. My mom is from the Seattle area, so I spent many holidays and summers with aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents in and around Seattle. I moved to Kitsap County in 1997.
I enjoy spending time with my children and with friends, reading (mostly historical fiction), spending time outdoors, and long hikes that aren't technically difficult.
This is my second year teaching music at Commodore.
