Job Title of the Moment

Insurance manager and Sales Representative at VCS Verizon Wireless


Graduated from Teton High School, Driggs, ID Currently working on my Bachelor's Degree in PreK-6

Right Now

I am working full time at Verizon Wireless retailer so if anyone needs an upgrade...let me know :)


I grew up in a small town in South Eastern Idaho called Driggs which is about 45 minutes away from Jackson Hole, WY and the Grand Teton Range. The town is also 1 1/2 hours from the nearest mall and indoor movie theater. We have one but it's a Drive-In which serves some of the best burgers you'll ever eat! I am an only child and come from a broken home which wasn't ever really a bad thing because my parents still find it easy to get along. They refer to each other as "the best ex-wife/husband they've ever had". I'm very excited to graduate school and teach. I want to be one of those teachers that I had in school that actually made learning fun. My dad is a teacher (Passage Middle School in Newport News, VA) and I asked him one day what he got out of teaching and he said, "If at the end of the school year, only one of my students has turned his whole misdemeanor personality around and has become respectable the years of education that I had to go through were well worth it." I have the same feeling about teaching. If I can change the life and mind-set of one student out of 100, that makes all the frustration of dealing with the other 99 more tolerable.

As for the other parts of me, I have a wonderful other half that I've been with for a little over 2 years now who is also attending school and we have a beautiful German Shepherd Labrador mix together who is the light of our lives and her name is Bailey.
