For eight years I've enjoyed being an Educational Assistant. The last seven years have been in the Tumwater School District; a year at Black Lake Elementary, two years at Tumwater Middle School, a little over a year at Black Hills High School, and over two years at Secondary Options. I'm still going strong and love being part of the Tumwater School District, working to help kids.
Before working in education, I worked at Wal-Mart as a Department Manager for eight years as well as in a salon part time while being a full time wife and mother of five for the last twenty five years. I am very motivated and enjoy challenges that end with success.
On the personal side, I enjoy being active: camping, boating, fishing, hunting, skiing, quad riding at the dunes, horseback riding, and going to as many sport activities as I can find the time to watch or be a part of. My all-time favorite thing to do is scrap booking all these events.
