I was born and raised in California. When I was 12 my Mother and Step-Father thought it would be fun to move and live without what I thought were life necessities, such as electricity, hot running water and a solid roof over our head.  So, we packed up our home in Santa Cruz, CA and moved to Humboldt County, Redwood Valley to be exact. We lived about an hour from civilization. We had kerosene lamps for light, a wood stove used for heat and of course for the hot water needed to take a bath. This is where I learned that chicken and beef didn't come already packaged from a grocery store and that rabbits weren't just for show at the fair. The farm also inspired me to strive for a less strenuous way to make a living. I am a better person for it. It gave me the ability to create on my own without the interruption of TV and videos. Books were a way to escape the reality of boredom. I have four awesome boys of my own and two equally amazing Grandchildren, both girls.  Several years ago, I married the man of my dreams and the son of the school's owner, Brad, so I could muscle my way in and take over the business when nobody was looking! I have been working for Elan since May 2008 and I love my job and all of these kids! I used to work in the Tech industry which I loved until I started working at the school. I spend my free time with family and friends. Someday I will travel the world, but until then I cook and bake, ride roller-coasters, travel locally, shop and if I have a lot of free time, spark up political conversations with my husband starting with the words...."what do you think about the blah crisis?" So,  I keep myself busy.  My long-term goals are simple, I want to watch my kids grow and succeed and help them along the way. I ALWAYS dream Big and figure out the details as I get closer to achieving the dream.
