I'm a happily married mother of 4.  I live in Clovis and have been involved with Clovis Unified School District for many years. As a graduate of Clovis High School, I consider myself lucky that I had the opportunity to mentor Clovis High School students as a teachers aid. After having children, I am a proud Clovis Unified mother. My children are all grown now and pursuing their own interest. Now I have time to spoil my "fur-babies" and watch my beloved hockey team San Jose Sharks. One of my favorite past times is gardening. My favorite flower is an Iris and I have hundreds of them. My husband and I love traveling and camping. Occasionally we attend a hockey game, if I'm lucky.
