I’m a leadership volunteer on the Next Door Board because I used to work as a teacher at Klahre House and I still want to be a part of a great agency that does great things for child ren and families in our community.
I am married to a wonderful and patient woman and we have two amazing boys who we love to travel with.
I am the Principal at May Street Elementary for Hood River County School District. I graduated from the University of Oregon and the University of Portland.
My background is in Outdoor Recreation management, adolescent recovery, Elementary Education and Special Education. In the past I supervised trail building crews in wilderness areas- great job! And I worked on a construction crew that specialized in fire and flood damage repairs- nasty job!
A favorite quote:
“You have your way, I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” Friedrich Nietzsche
How I do things I don’t want to do:
Seek out someone who is willing to do it and curry favor with them. Sometimes I just have to do it myself.
