Q: Who or what inspired you to work at McAuliffe?

A: I have worked for Los Alamitos Unified District for 32 years and 30 years of that time has been in the health office at the high school. This year I am dividing my day between the high school and McAuliffe in both health offices.  It has been awesome.

A: I cannot think of one book; I do like a good mystery when I have time!
