Who is your favorite teacher?

My favorite teacher was my high school Human Physiology and Anatomy Teacher Phyllis Fangman. Mrs. Fangman paired her high expectations for her students with a great enthusiasm for the subject matter. She taught me that with a lot of passion and diligence you can learn anything, even if it’s hard.

What do you do in your free time?

I love to spend my free time with my husband, daughters and two rescue dogs. Travel, cooking, and gardening are passions of mine. I enjoy being outside in our beautiful weather riding my bike or hiking.
