During my time with the FAA, I also taught 4thgrade ELA and Social Studies in the Madison school district and 7th grade Mathematics at Desert Sky Middle School. I am also a U.S. Air Force Veteran.
I have two daughters. Stephanie is a professional wedding photographer in Tucson and Katie works and lives in Spokane, WA. I have a bunch of dogs and three horses. In her spare time, she rides and shows her horses; Otis, Harper, and Hadley.
I love riding my horses, kayaking, traveling, reading, cooking, sewing and just about anything crafty.
