About Me

In my search for great coffee one of the bonuses is being presented a work of art.

My childhood years were spent exploring the country side of Pennsylvania and for the past 20 years I lived in Colorado Springs, CO.  In September 2013 I moved to Walla Walla to begin a new chapter in my career and life.

I am committed to promoting student development and wellness and carry a high degree of intrinsic passion for the art of teaching.
