Term: June 1, 2016-May 31, 2018

I was born in Paradise and lived here until the end of my 7th grade year when my family and I moved to Lodi, CA.  My father's job required him to move offices roughly every 2 years so the middle of the way through 9th grade I moved to Windsor Ca.  At the beginning of my senior year in high school we had one more move to Rocklin CA.  Upon completion of high school I moved back to the Santa Rosa area for college, where I ended up getting my EMT certification.  I moved back to Butte County in 1996 where I started working for a local ambulance service and obtained my Paramedic license in 1998 which I still maintain.  My husband Mike and I have lived in the Paradise area since 1998 and we have 3 children, Colby 12, Casey 11 and Lauren 8.  We have been CCCS parents since 2013 and feel very blessed to be able to have our children part of an educational system that is focused on the children.  Up until last year I worked for Cal Fire/Butte County and decided that my kids were only going to be young once and it was more important for me to be there for them so I quit my job and became a stay at home mom.
