What do you enjoy most about being part of the Options team?
While obviously I can’t answer this since I am just joining the team, I am most looking forward to using my years of experience in education to reach the total being of the student. I want to be able to build relationships with students so that they can reach their future goals. I am most excited about being able to be an ‘outside of the box thinker’ to make goals happen for my students due to the flexibility of the DE program.

What do you enjoy outside of Options?
I am a busy mom of 4 kids and thus I most enjoy attending all of their activities. As a family we enjoy camping and hiking. Personally, I enjoy reading thriller books on my kindle while drinking coffee and riding my Harley motorcycle.
