I began teaching Family & Consumer Sciences at ACHS in 2018. Prior to that I spent a few years as a substitute teacher in addition to being a consumer journalist covering baby & family. My additional duties at ACHS include FCCLA chapter adviser, Career & Technical Education Coordinator, and junior class IPS coordinator. I’ve been part of the Bulldog Booster Club for 9 years and am currently serving as president. Email:
