In 1984 I graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Fine Arts. I lived in Japan teaching English for three years, and then moved to the Wood River Valley in 1988. Skiing brought me to Sun Valley, the amazing lifestyle and community encouraged me to stay. I enjoyed being a real estate agent for 16 years. My interest shifted to education in 2002, when I adapted a Japanese method for teaching people to read English called Nardagani. I am excited to see how I may be of service to IHAD Foundation-ID!
