Hawaii Pacific University- Bachelor of Arts in Human Services

Liberty University- Master of Arts in Human Services 


This is my 4th year teaching in North Carolina. I taught 3 years at Swansboro Middle School and this is my first year at Swansboro High School.

 I am originally from Kaneohe, Hawaii. I have been married to a Marine for the past 17 years so have had the opportunity to live all over the world. Some of those places include Iwakuni, Japan; Yuma, Arizona; Oslo, Norway; Gaborone, Botswana; Kailua, Hawaii; Plainfield, Illinois; and Swansboro, North Carolina. I am thrilled to now call this "Friendly City by the Sea" home! I have 2 amazing daughters, Bailey and Makenna. Bailey is a 9th grader at Swansboro High School and Makenna is an 8th grader at Swansboro Middle School. I also have 3 K9 kids: Kona, Nani and Malu. They are all beautiful yellow labs who have no clue they're animals. I would hate to hurt their feelings!
    I enjoy spending my free time with my family, sitting with my toes in the sand, and going on runs. And one of these days you'll see me on Wheel of Fortune...maybe!
