I consider myself to a native of the great state of Iowa (GO HAWKEYES) however I moved several times before I graduated high school. After being born in Iowa I moved to Washington, Montana, Nebraska, back to Iowa (second time), Kansas, Oregon, back to Iowa (again) and finally back to Oregon where I graduated high school from Sam Barlow in Gresham. After high school I attended both Pacific Lutheran University (ATTAWAY!) and Portland State University where I earned degrees in History and Social Sciences.  I then earned my Teaching certification from Concordia University in Portland. As part of my student teaching I was introduced to Ridgefield High School in 1996 and have been here since that time. GO SPUDS!


I have also earned a Masters degree from Ball State University in Athletic Administration with a focus on coaching. 


I have always enjoyed history and was inspired by my 10th grade teacher Mr. Riddel to follow in his footsteps and take on the mantel of being both a teacher and coach. 
IT IS A GREAT DAY TO BE A SPUD!!!!!
