Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.Classroom Supplies:The supplies for my classes are minimal. They are as follows:
- All students will need a folder with pockets

I obtained my degree in Family and Consumer Science Education from The Ohio State University. I have completed the Teacher Leader program in Family and Consumer Science Education through the Ohio Department of Education and the Personal Finance Teacher Academy at Wright State University. I have been fortunate to be teaching at Tippecanoe High School since 1988. I have a background in business, as I started out my career with KitchenAid as a test kitchen home economist. While working at KitchenAid, I worked with consumers and professionals to promote the marketing and use of the products. This was a great training ground for teaching the nutrition and food preparation classes. I am committed to providing quality Family and Consumer Science education to the students here at Tippecanoe High School. I love working with high school students as they enter into the next steps in their lives. In my spare time I enjoy jogging and running races (I use the term running loosely), gardening, going to auctions, and spending time with my family.
Lesson Plans and further information about each class can be found on each class page.
