Hello! I love Fairview! My son started in Pre-K in 2006 (and graduated 8th grade in 2017), my daughter started in preschool in 2008 (and will graduate in 2019) and I started working here doing the Billing in 2016. My husband Henry and I have been married for over 25 years. We love Washington and especially love spending time on Hood Canal. When I'm not at work or driving my kids to their activities, I love walking my dog, being with friends and family and trying to get my kids to eat healthy food!
