After moving to Kauai in 2012, she spent 5 years as the middle school social science and theatre director and middle/high school theatre arts teacher at Island school. After a 6-month vacation that included traveling to the Zumba Convention in Florida and a Dude Ranch in Oregon for some rodeo activities , she began teaching Freshman English at Waimea High School this last January and will add an acting class to her responsibilities there next year. In her free time she teaches Zumba as a certified Zumba Instructor in Kalaheo, where she also resides with her husband, Rocco, and teen daughter, Jaden. Her adult son, Mitch, lives on Maui. She enjoys hiking, spending time with friends and family, being with animals, going to the beach, yoga, reading, playwriting, and the “aha” moment when a student “gets it” or their face “beams”with success for the first time.
