    I was born in Kansas, spent part of my childhood in Japan, moved to California by way of Chicago, and spent most of my adult career in Heidelberg, Germany.  I earned my master's degree in public health nursing from Fresno State where I began my school nurse career working at Riverdale HS and in the migrant health and early childhood education programs. After four years, I accepted a two-year assignment in the Department of Defense Schools in Germany.  However, my family and I loved living and working in Europe so much that we ended up staying more than 20 years.  In my school nurse position, I sponsored the Outdoor Education Program, organized a school based clinic, and founded an award winning HIV peer education program.

    I transitioned back to California working part time in Washington, D.C. as an elected officer of the executive board of the Federal Education Association (FEA), a state affiliate of the National Education Association (NEA).  This position gave me the opportunity to visit members working in Federal schools throughout Europe, Asia and the United States.  I also served on the Board of Directors of the National Association of School Nurses (NASN).
    Although I loved my life in Europe, I am very happy to be back in California, working with the children and families of Ross School.  I enjoy hiking and other outdoor adventures in beautiful Marin County.  And, I am happy to be living closer to my mother, daughter, and three grandchildren.
