Regional Outreach Coordinator
Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a passion for kids and critters. My life-long interest in early education, early brain development and teaching youth had me spending many years as an instructor with The Oregon Museum of Science and Industry as well as coordinating and teaching The High Desert Museum. I also spent a wonderful year as a nanny to twins and a 3 year old. I have a degree in Biology from the University of Montana and after many years of traveling the country, I have returned home to Bend, bringing with me my deep love and pride in the Central Oregon community.
My role at Healthy Beginnings is to spread the word about the importance of screenings, the wealth of resources that are available at community screenings, and to facilitate family involvement. It’s the people I work with who inspire me through their passion and knowledge.
In my spare time, I have a small ranch called Le Bella Vita Acres. I’m fixing it up and taking care of a menagerie of barnyard friends.
