Hello! I am the 7-2 Social Studies Teacher. A little info about me: I have been married to my college sweetheart, Kevin, for 35 years. He is a realtor in the NorthWest Valley. We have 2 adult children, Rachel and James. Rachel is married to Ryan, a Hillcrest alum, and they have a son named Johnnie and daughter Josie. My son is married to another Hillcrest alum, Sloane. Our family moved from Buffalo, NY to sunny Arizona in 1999 and we were very happy to leave the snow and ice behind.
