She started her education at Scottsdale Community College and completed her degree at Arizona State University, graduating Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education.

The Grand Canyon Chapter will hold their next meeting on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2013 at 11:30 a.m.  Ann Marie Krueger, RN, MPH will be welcomed as a guest speaker, giving a program on The Banner Good Samaritan Poison Center.  For information on meetings or the DAR, contact Regent, Katie Paulsen, at azkpaulsen@yahoo.com."
