Although I just started with the Education Customer Engagement team, I already feel like I am home.  I started my career in education over 23 years ago and can truly relate to the book by Dr. Seuss, “Oh, the places you’ll go”.  Prior to joining Microsoft, I was the Administrator of Digital Integration for the largest school district in Idaho.  My team supported the implementation, training, and evaluation of all technology integration throughout the district.  I worked with the amazing  Microsoft customer facing team as one of the first members of the Technology Adoption Program implementing Teams and Office 365 across all 57 buildings in our district. I am so excited to use my experience as a teacher, instructional coach, principal, and district administrator to support other education customers implementing Microsoft tools.  I have been a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert Fellow and national trainer and was awarded the ISTE Make it Happen award for Leadership in Educational Technology in 2018.  I will graduate in May with an Ed.D. in Executive Leadership in Curriculum and Instruction and am currently working on completing my ISTE certification.

I live in Meridian, Idaho with my husband and best-friend, Richard, of over 30 years.  We have three amazing children, Ricky (25), Ryan (22), and Mikayla (15).  Being their mom is the highlight of my life.  I love to travel, laugh, share great stories, and spoil my 8 lbs. Morkie, Khloe.   I am so proud and honored to be a part of this Microsoft family.
