    Welcome to my Perry Comprehensive Health and PE teacher page - Glad you are part of our Puma Nation!

    My Education and Professional Background

    Information about me:   

    I started my first half of childhood in Michigan City, Indiana (a small town on Lake Michigan near Chicago.)  I moved to Las Vegas, Nevada to graduate high school (Chaparral - go Cowboys!) and then continued my educational journey at UNLV.   I married my High school sweetheart, stayed home with 3 kids and finished my bachelors degree in Accounting/Business Administration from Lakeland College in Wisconsin.   I have worked as a lifeguard, administrative assistant, EMT, swim instructor, swim coach, and pool manager for many years when I decided to get my masters degree in Physical Education.  I was hired on in the PE department at South Valley Junior high and was there for over 12 years.  I am so lucky to be over here and be a part of the Perry Pumas!   I have been a high school swim coach for the past 20 years.   I am a avid mountain bike rider, wakesurfer, wakeboarder, snow skier and pilot.      

    My Educational Philosophy

    I believe students should be taught in a motivating manner and teach skills for life.
