I am an Idaho native and after High School I attended Idaho State University. I hold an Associates degree in General Studies, a Bachelor’s degree in Speech & Language Pathology/ Audiology and Masters in Speech & Language Pathology. I started working for the district in 2017. I work with Preschool, Elementary, and High School students. I am married to Paul & we have 3 daughters. I love spending time with my family, rock climbing, outdoor activities, learning about other cultures, and traveling. I am a bibliophile, and a fun fact: I speak Tagalog. My goal for this school year is to enrich the lives of students by providing improved communication skills.
Hello! I have been working for the Fruitland School District as a Speech-Language Pathologist since 2016. I completed my undergraduate education at NNU and my Master’s program at ISU Boise. I have been practicing speech/language pathology since 2004, and prior to coming to Fruitland, I primarily worked in outpatient clinics, including the St. Al’s Brain Injury and Concussion clinic. I provide therapy for students in the elementary and middle schools. I love my co-workers, and I enjoy building personal relationships with my students and helping them improve their communication skills. I live in Meridian with my husband, two kids, my Vizsla fur baby named Harper, and my “muggin” (pug/mini pinscher) named Stella. I enjoy reading, yoga, meditation, house projects, interior design/decorating, being in nature, spending time in McCall and running my Airbnb business.
