I was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand with three other siblings (one brother & two sisters who are twins). I earned a B.A. in teaching English and German from Srinakharin Wirot University in Bangkok in 1990. While working on my B.A., I had an opportunity to teach English and German at a few language schools there. Soon after I graduated, my parents sent me to the USA to attend Western Michigan University where I earned my M.A. in Career and Technical Education in 1993.
I've been the placement specialist at the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center since 2004. Prior to working for the Muskegon Area Career Tech Center, I was the career specialist for Fruitport Community Schools for five years. I also taught the Thai language at Kalamazoo College for several years.
I am married to my husband Greg for over 20 years and I am a proud mother of one daughter, Madeleine who's a junior at Kendall College of Art and Design. We also have a beloved English bulldog named Stella. I love cooking, shopping, reading, Netflixing, watching soccer, and I love animals a lot.
I don't have a personal motto, but I do know that I love my job. A job that empowers me to help kids, and that is BIG to me.
