I grew up in the tiny town of Bonsall, CA (just north of San Diego) and went to high school in Fallbrook, CA. In 1992, I graduated with a BA in Communicative Disorders from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA, and I married a Montanan that same year! In 1993, I completed my MA in Speech/Language Pathology at Pacific, and I began searching for a job in Montana. I was fortunate enough to be hired at the YWCCSS Cooperative and have worked here ever since. I have served nearly every school in the co-op and have enjoyed watching my students grow up!
