I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Kettering University. For the first 20 years of my career I worked as an engineer for General Motors. My last position was as the leader of Saturn University which taught industrial professional the topics of lean manufacturing, material flow concepts, team building and a variety of other corporate concepts. After staying home with my children for a few years, I decided I wanted to share my passion for math and learning with younger students.
I am very excited and blessed to be teaching at Cox Mill High School. This will be my sixth year at Cox Mill. It is a wonderful place to be!
I love to read, paint and travel. My family has traveled to some really interesting places....Ireland, Scotland, England, Hungary, France, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, Brazil, New Zealand, and Australia, Germany and Italy. I can't wait to see where our next adventure will take us.
