I was born in Grosse Point, Mi and grew up in St. Clair Shores, MI.
I graduated from St. Clair Shores Lake Shore in 1983 as a member of a class of 650.
I spent five years on the campus of Central Michigan University graduating in 1988 with my Bachelor's in Music Education.
I arrived at H.B.C.S. in August 1988.
From 1988 to 2006, I worked as the Director of Bands, earning my Master's in Music Education from CMU in 1997.
In 2006, I added an English minor to my teaching certification. Since 2006, I also taught HS ELA classes.
After 29 years and 5775 days employed as the Director of Bands at H.B.C.S,
starting September, 2017, I have now moved entirely to the HS ELA classroom.
