I was born and raised in Alaska. I then moved to Hawaii to pursue my college education. I transfered to the University of Northern Colorado where I received my BA. I attended Washington State University where I received my Masters Degree in Speech and Hearing Science. After five years of government audiology service I enrolled at the University of Arizona to pursue my doctorate degree. I subsequently moved to Sierra Vista where I completed my doctorate degree at the Arizona School of Health Sciences.

In my spare time I make knives and jewelry. You might even find me kilted on Celtic Holidays at the office or at the highland games.
