PPCS Startup Coordinator

I have a background in accounting and information services and have had the privilege to work in a variety of places including as an accountant in a CPA firm and a large corporation, and as an information specialist with the Colorado State Department of Education and the WSU Libraries. When the school’s founding board was looking for assistance in the spring of 2009, I was thrilled to join the crew. While I may answer the phone, my main focus is supporting the amazing Palouse Prairie staff through sound financial reporting and management, so they can do their great work with our students.

I have a passion for supporting education and personal growth both at the school and in the community. You might find me teaching parenting classes or empowering people through life coaching support when I’m not at the school. I am the proud parent of two young men, one of whom is a PPCS and University of Idaho graduate. I am grateful for the qualities of character that were nurtured in him at the school, along with the academic rigor.
