Aloha and welcome to my home page.
I first moved to Hawaii when I was in 8th grade. I graduated from Konawaena on the Big Island where I enjoyed taking French and racing on the swim team.
I attended the University of California at Santa Cruz and graduated with a BS in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology.
Then it was back to Kona for my first two years of teaching. I worked at the West Hawaii Explorations Academy (WHEA) teaching math and science at the high school level. We traveled to Kauai for a vacation in 2001 and that's when Boris joined the family. We rescued him while stopping at the Russian Fort.
Next, my husband and I moved to Texas for four years so he could study jazz at the University of North Texas. While he worked on his masters degree, I taught science in 5th then 7th grade. Boris just lounged around and daydreamed about Hawaii.
We moved back to Kona in 2007 and I again worked at WHEA, this time in the middle school. Boris did not enjoy getting his rabies vaccinations but he was happy to be back home.
Four years ago my husband and I moved to Oahu from the Big Island so that he could attend medical school at JABSOM (John A. Burns School of Medicine). I have really enjoyed the last four years here at Moanalua and I am really looking forward to this year too!
I love running and I usually run 12 to 30 miles a week.
I also love to knit and crochet.
