School Staff & Contact List
Hello, Cayuse Prairie families! I am THRILLED to be the new office manager at our amazing school! I have deep roots at Cayuse Prairie, as this is where I attended school from Kindergarten to 8th grade. My dad, aunts, and uncles are all Cayuse Prairie alumni, and my grandparents, the Snells, were very involved in all aspects the school for many years, as well.
I attended Flathead High School and FVCC, where I received Associates of Applied Science degrees in Business Management and Marketing. I spent my young adult years in retail management. Twenty years ago, I married my high school sweetheart, Ryder, and we have two amazing children, Sydney and Joey, who are also Cayuse Prairie kids!
I have been a substitute and volunteer for our school for the last six years. If you know me, then you know I am a pretty busy lady! When I am not at school, you might find me at volunteering with the Dandy Dudes & Dolls 4-H Club, Eastside Grange, Cayuse Prairie P&F, or at church. My favorite hobbies are reading, cooking, aromatherapy, scrapbooking, photography, and genealogy. I love learning new things!
As a substitute, I loved the flexibility, I loved getting to know every individual student, and I loved getting to experience “walking in someone else's shoes”. It gave me a deep appreciation for the trials and triumphs of those who have dedicated their lives to elementary education. Every day as a sub was an adventure! Now that my children are older, I am so excited and grateful for the opportunity to dedicate myself to working with the children, parents, and staff at Cayuse Prairie School on a full-time basis.
