Title:  Food Service Director

As I enter into my 29th year with North Santiam School District it is such an exciting time to be in Child Nutrition.  The advances over the years of what we offer to our students and the combination of wonderful flavors and healthy items continues to impress me.  It is so rewarding to go to the schools and talk to the students and hear about their favorite meals. If students have ideas about what they would like to see offered in their school meal service please have them share it with the food service staff.  We are always looking for new ways to improve our program.   

I have been very blesssed to have a team of long standing Food Service employees that work hard each and every day to provide great service and show they care through the foods they serve and the way they interact with the students and staff at the schools.    

My goal is to ensure we are providing the best service we can in all areas of Child Nutrition.  I can be a resource for Free and Reduced Meal Applications, School Breakfast and Lunch, Food Restrictions or Allergies, After School Meals and Summer Food.  If there is any way I can be of assistance to you or your student, please contact me at 503-769-4115 

I hope your experiences with the Food Service Program are always positive.
