Background: I have a B.A. in International studies and History from George Fox College, 1994 graduate.  Also spent a summer in Madrid, Spain at the University of Madrid in a Spanish program.  I have been a Nanny in Boston Mass. For the year of 1994-1995.

My passion is international work so work with World relief as an employment coordinator.  I love all different cultures.  I have traveled a lot of places.  Turkey being one of my favorites.

When we lived in Knoxville, TN I volunteered with the Hardin Valley Elem. School where my kids went.  Was also a Girls on the run coach when my daughter was in 3rd grade 2010. When we moved back to the Tri-cities I so helped volunteered with Jefferson school and Chief Joseph middle school.

I love working with kids and seeing there different personalities and seeing how they grow in work that they do.My family is my husband Kip, son Jack 15 and Paige is 12.  We enjoy the outdoors, like camping and hiking.  I love running  and have done many marathons.

What I like most about the Sprouts Preschool: I really enjoy Hillspring with their passion for missions.  Their love for culture and sharing Jesus to the world and community.

Favorite Movie: I love Sense and Sensibility. I enjoy that time in England and just the ups and down of the way of life and the love story in the movie. I cry at the end all the time.

Aha Moment: A moment was when we were in the country Turkey and went to the the town Ephesus.  Just sitting in the colosseum and knowing that Paul had preached there was just amazing.

Book I would recommend: My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice.  I am a Jane Austin fan.
