    I worked as a teacher in Toronto, before moving to Seattle. In Toronto, I worked with two employers using mainframe computers inMr. Etherington IT, which set the stage for me to enter Career & Technical Education at the Puget Sound Skills Center. The program has morphed over the years to include digital communications. 

    Broadcast Communications is my passion. Whether it is working with students on the Northwest High School Film Festival, training a news team, podcasting student content, or producing a TV YouTube channel, each day presents new challenges and great opportunities to assist students in this fast-growing field. 

    I look forward to meeting you!
