I began my teaching career in music education in 1990 and taught at the elementary, middle, and high school levels until 2008. From 1999 to 2008 I served as director of choral activities at our very own Northwestern High School and for much of that time as chair of Northwestern's Fine Arts department. Beginning in the 2008-2009 school year, I changed my focus and became Northwestern's first testing coordinator, the job I still hold today. My interests are music, gardening, and reading. I am married to Ben Mixon, and we have two daughters, Sarah and Eleanor.
