     Secretary – Secondary Options High School

    Graduated – 1979 – Tumwater High School

     Hello! I am the Secretary of Secondary Options High School in the Tumwater School District.

     After graduating from Tumwater high school, I started working for the Department of Social and Health Services as a Data Entry Clerk from 1979-1981. In 1981, I started a daycare out of my home so I could take care of my two children. After my children started school, I went to work part-time for WA Travel Services until I was hired on at Tumwater School District in 1991.

     I started my career working at Littlerock Elementary part-time as a Library Assistant and then was hired shortly thereafter as an Office Assistant. I worked at Littlerock Elementary for eight years until I was hired on as the Secretary for Secondary Options High School.

    I have been working for the last twenty-five years for the Tumwater School District.

     I have a wonderful husband of 38 years and two amazing children and 4 grandchildren that I am very proud of.  In my spare time, I enjoy gardening and spending time with my family.

     The most rewarding part of my job here at Secondary Options is working with the students and watching them become successful young adults. They truly are amazing students and I absolutely love my job!
