I grew up in Boulder, Montana, and attended Boulder Public Schools from K-12. I graduated from JHS in 1989. I received my bachelor's degree from Western Montana College (UM-Western) with a master's in biology and a history minor. My first year of teaching was in Wolf Point, Montana, where I taught life science and earth science. I also coached football and junior high basketball.
I started teaching at Jefferson High (go panthers) in 1996. I initially taught both history and science at Jefferson High School, but currently, I am teaching all life science courses. I have also coached both football and basketball at Jefferson High in previous years.
For clubs,I advise the National Honor Society and the Science Olympiad team.
