I have been an instructor at LCC since 2005. I started out teaching adult basic skills (GED) and English as a Second Language classes, and I'm currently teaching in the CEO program helping students finish their high school credits and transition into college. I love teaching math and social studies subjects. I have three adult daughters who are all married, and 3 grandsons (with one more on the way). I lived in Longview for 25 years but recently moved to Vancouver. I am the faculty advisor for the Christian Club at LCC, and also volunteer with a campus ministry group called Cru at WSU-V. I love reading, walking, and traveling, and I would love to try rock climbing someday!
At the center of my identity is my relationship with Jesus Christ. I believe that there is one true God who created the universe and is sovereign over it. He has revealed himself in the Bible and He desires to have a relationship with each one of us. That relationship is only possible because of the redemptive work of Jesus' death and resurrection. I can't imagine trying to live life without the love, security, and comfort I have in knowing God and trusting in Him. Please let me know if you have any questions about my faith, or would like me to pray for you!
