Professional Statement: I began employment with Ponca City Schools in 1999 transferring to CNP in 2002 as the program’s Financial Secretary, holding many positions within CNP as secondary site manager positions, SFSP Coordinator, HACCP Coordinator, Nutritional Analysis Coordinator, and Elementary Site Coordinator. In 2004 I received the Camps Mart Employee Recognition Award and in 2005 received the Ponca City District Support Employee Award. During 2004 through 2010 I attended the Oklahoma Center for School Business Management at OSU. In 2013 I was selected as one of two to represent Oklahoma in a “Serving Up Science” Training Seminar at Kansas State University with the Center of Excellence for Food Safety Research in CNP as they developed training and guidelines for child nutrition programs across the country.
Personal Statement: I would not be the person I am today without the professional support of my Ponca City co-workers or the Oklahoma SNA organization and its members. They have mentored me in many ways, showing me the integration of leadership qualities, allowing me to foster environments to guide, govern and guard the integrity of my staff, the CNP program and the SNA organization. Child Nutrition is an ever-changing and challenging environment where I continue to seek what’s best for kids.
My husband, David, and I have a blended family of 6 children, 11 (+1 pending) grandchildren, one handicap and 1 brittle diabetic/epileptic. David and I have been foster parents to three elementary-age siblings, active in the foster system twice in our marriage.
