As an Idaho native and 40-year resident of Ada County I have an enormous amount of pride and respect for the county and its residents. My time in Ada County has been filled with varied professional experiences that have formed a unique perspective on the county and the issues facing it.
I have raised two beautiful children in this community. My son Shad graduated from Boise State University with a degree in Psychology. He played basketball at BSU and was blessed to be on the team that went to the NCAAs. For the past fifteen years he has been a local high school teacher, basketball coach and professional river guide on the Salmon River. My son has spent numerous years volunteering in our community helping youth build strong morals and character through basketball skill building and teamwork.
My daughter Cyprus attended East Junior High and Timberline High School. She is a graduate of the acclaimed Idaho Shakespeare Apprentice Program, and participated in Boise Contemporary Theatre for 3 years. Cyprus has spent many hours volunteering at both animal and homeless shelters. She is currently a member of the Kiwanis youth club Circle K., and was awarded a Rotary Youth Leadership Scholarship. She is currently a student at UC Davis and will study abroad this year for the second time.MY RESUME
